Is Domestic Violence a Felony in TN?

In Tennessee, domestic assault is a Class A Misdemeanor. The maximum jail sentence for a Class A Misdemeanor is 11 months 29 days in jail and a $200 fine. A person who is convicted of domestic assault will also be required to surrender any firearms they own. They will also be no longer eligible for a firearms permit.

Advocacy in Times of Need

In Tennessee, domestic violence is a type of assault and charges are typically brought up when there are allegations of spousal abuse or child neglect. Most of the time, domestic violence is considered a class A misdemeanor, which means defendants can face jail time of nearly a year and a fine ranging in the thousands of dollars.

Protecting Your Rights

In many cases, domestic violence can result in an order of protection being issued by the court. Because domestic violence charges arise in highly charged environments, the accused’s significant other may try to keep the accused away from their family. This may even occur because one spouse is angry at another over divorce or child custody and support proceedings.

Protective Order Restrictions

This protective order can restrict your freedom, including your right:
  • To own or possess a firearm
  • To contact the alleged victim, whether by phone, email, mail, or physical approach

Violating these orders can have serious civil and criminal consequences. Larsen Law PLLC provides strong advocacy on behalf of clients who feel these orders were issued incorrectly as well as for those who have been accused of violating the orders. Our firm is committed to helping you achieve the best possible legal outcome through skilled and compassionate service.
