Sex Crimes in Tennessee

Many sex offenses are charged and penalized as felonies. Even a misdemeanor charge of public indecency, however, can taint your reputation and social standing.

Examples of sex crimes in the state include:

  • Sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault

  • Sexual battery, sexual battery by an authority figure, and aggravated sexual battery

  • Rape, statutory rape, rape of a child

  • Sexual exploitation of a minor

  • Child pornography possession, distribution, or manufacture

  • Solicitation of a minor, solicitation of exploiting a minor, solicitation of a minor through electronic means such as internet chat rooms, texting, etc.

  • Prostitution or promotion of prostitution

  • Sex trafficking

  • Indecent exposure/public indecency

Rape involves the use of force or threats and is committed against the alleged victim without his or her consent. However, the existence of aggravating factors such as weapons being used, the victim suffers serious injury, when another person aids you, or when the victim is physically or mentally incapacitated. Statutory rape which involves a victim that is 13 to 17 years old becomes aggravated when you are 10 years older than the victim. Statutory rape or sexual battery of someone by an authority figure would occur when it takes place by a person who is in a position of authority, such as a teacher, coach, medical professional, or caretaker against a minor aged 13 to 17.

Sexual battery occurs through the intentional touching of intimate body parts (even through clothing) when done with force or without the agreement of the victim or when the victim is mentally or physically incapacitated.

Penalties in Sex Crimes

Charges in any of the above sex crimes can range from the lowest level Class E felony up to the highest-level Class A felony. Prison terms can span from a year up to 60 years with fines from $3,000 up to $50,000. Mandatory sex offender registration for several years up to life may also be required. Sex offender registration can seriously impact where you can live or work and your reputation among neighbors, friends, future employers, and more. Failure to register is also a crime.
