What are Domestic Violence Crimes in Tennessee?

Domestic violence can occur in a variety of ways making it one of the broadest categories of crimes in the state. It involves any type of attack on the following:

  • A spouse or ex-spouse

  • Someone you live with

  • A blood relative

  • A relative by marriage

  • A dating or sexual partner

  • A parent

  • A child

This type of violent crime can involve any kind of assault, from slapping, punching, throwing objects, spitting, threatening, physically restraining, or attempting to strangle. It can also include aggravated assault, rape, child abuse, elder abuse, child neglect or endangerment, and false imprisonment. In a more subtle way, it can include emotional or psychological abuse such as stalking, harassment, isolating or restricting the victim from outside communication or from working outside the home, intimidation, putting someone in total dependency for financial support, sabotaging educational and other efforts at independence, and more.

Penalties in Domestic Violence Cases

The penalties you face in any domestic violence case will depend on what type of crime you have been charged with. First-offense domestic assault is generally charged as a Class A or B misdemeanor. A Class A misdemeanor carries penalties of up to a year in jail and/or fines of up to $2,500, while a Class B misdemeanor is punishable by up to six months in jail and/or fines of up to $500.

If you are charged with aggravated assault which involves serious injury to the victim through recklessness or through the use of a deadly weapon, you will face a Class D or C felony. A Class D felony is punishable by two up to 12 years in prison and fines of up to $5,000, while a Class C felony carries penalties of three to 15 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.
