Violent Crimes in Tennessee

Most violent crimes are charged as felonies that carry lengthy prison sentences, fines, and probation. The penalties are harsh and the effect on your life can include ruined personal and social relationships, difficulty finding employment or housing as well as disqualification for professional licenses or educational aid due to a permanent criminal record. A violent crime conviction can also have immigration consequences for noncitizens.

Manslaughter & Murder in Tennessee

In Tennessee, manslaughter may be voluntary or involuntary. Involuntary manslaughter occurs when you accidentally kill someone through recklessness, gross negligence, or by doing something illegal. Acting in a criminally negligent manner that results in another’s death is generally charged as a Class E felony, while reckless homicide is considered more serious and is charged as a Class D felony. Vehicular homicide occurs when you kill someone with your car and is often the result of a DUI; it may be charged as a Class B or Class A felony depending on the circumstances.

Voluntary manslaughter occurs when you kill someone in a moment of passion. It differs from murder in that it is not premeditated. It is charged as a Class C felony. Murder is the most serious of all violent crime offenses because it involves the premeditated and intentional killing of someone. It may also occur during the commission of another crime, such as robbery, rape, burglary, kidnapping, and similar felonies.

Another definition of murder in the state involves killing someone with the use of a bomb. These types of actions are all considered to be first-degree murder. Any type of murder that does not constitute first-degree is considered second-degree. First-degree murder carries penalties of life imprisonment either with or without the possibility of parole or the death penalty. Second-degree murder is charged as a Class A felony punishable by 15 to 60 years in prison and fines of up to $50,000.
