Understanding Underage Gambling Charges in Las Vegas

A Simple Guide to What Happens When Someone Under 18 Gets Caught Betting

Underage gambling is a serious matter, especially in a city like Las Vegas. This city is known for its flashy casinos and fantastic nightlife. However, you must be at least 21 years old to gamble. But what happens when someone under 18 is caught gambling?

What is Underage Gambling?

Underage gambling means that someone who is not yet 21 is participating in gambling activities. This could be playing slot machines, poker, roulette, or betting on sports games. In Las Vegas, the laws are very strict about this. If you’re under 21 and you’re caught gambling, you could get into serious trouble.

What are the Consequences?

There can be several consequences if you’re caught gambling underage in Las Vegas.

First, the casino could kick you out and ban you from returning. This could be embarrassing and disappointing.

Second, you could get in trouble with the law. This means that the police could charge you with a crime.

In Las Vegas, underage gambling is considered a misdemeanor. This is a type of crime that is not as severe as a felony but is still serious.

If you’re convicted, you could face fines, community service, or even spend time in jail. Plus, having a criminal record could make it harder for you to get a job or go to college in the future.

What to Do If You're Charged?

If you or someone you know is charged with underage gambling, it’s crucial to get help from a defense attorney right away.

A defense attorney is a lawyer who helps people accused of crimes. They can help you understand your rights and devise a plan to deal with the charges.

The Rosenblum Allen Law Firm is a Las Vegas law firm that can help. They have experience dealing with underage gambling charges and can guide you through the legal process.
