Case Synopsis

The Nevada Supreme Court upheld Alfaro's convictions on seven counts of sexual assault and two counts of lewdness with a minor under the age of 14. Alfaro challenged the sufficiency of the evidence and argued that some counts were redundant and cited evidentiary and jury instruction errors. The Court reversed one conviction for lewdness as redundant and remanded for correction of the judgment. The Court upheld Alfaro’s remaining nine convictions, deeming there was adequate evidence to support the charges.
