What Is Assault in Tennessee?

Under Tennessee law, you could face assault charges without even making physical contact with the alleged victim. You can be charged with assault by just threatening someone with harm and causing them to fear that you can and will follow through.

Simple assault is charged as a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500.

Consequences of Assault

The actual infliction of bodily harm on another person is a more serious offense that could be charged as a felony. The degree of the felony charge will depend on the extent of physical harm caused, intent, and whether a deadly weapon was used in the commission of the crime.

Aggravated assault may be charged as a Class D or Class C felony with penalties ranging from 2 to 15 years in prison and steep fines.
