Except under circumstances where a greater penalty is provided in NRS 201.540, a person who commits statutory sexual seduction shall be punished: 1.If he is 21 years of age or older, for a category C felony as provided in NRS 193.130. If he is under the age of 21 years, for a gross misdemeanor.
Prosecutions are usually limited to situations in which the offender is over the age of 18.
So, as long as both partners are under the age of 18, and they are reasonably close to the same age, it is unlikely that any prosecution will result in Nevada.
