Every crime in Nevada can be classified as either a misdemeanor, a gross misdemeanor, or a felony. Felonies, in turn, are subdivided into five different categories.
Note that attempts to commit a category C, D or E felony can be punished as either a felony or a gross misdemeanor--these crimes are called "wobblers."
