Violent Crimes Aggressive. Effective. Discreet.


Defending Against Violent Crimes in Tennessee

Local law enforcement routinely arrest individuals in the greater Knoxville area for “violent” crimes. These are crimes that involve aggression and force against other people and both public and private property. In such cases, local state and federal prosecutors seek to prosecute the accused to the fullest extent of the law making maximum charges and seeking maximum penalties against any offenders. Because of this, if you or someone you know has been accused of a violent crime, it is vital that you have an attorney in your corner who is experienced at handling these complex cases.

Types of Violent Crimes

Accusations of a violent crime rank among the serious allegations you can face. A conviction will likely lead to prison time and hefty fines as well as a permanent criminal record. That record can endanger future prospects because it will be accessible on a routine background check. These checks can limit opportunities from future employers, landlords, professional licensing agencies, and more. If you are a noncitizen, a violent crime conviction can lead to deportation consequences.

Common Violent Crimes in Knox County:

  • Arson
  • Armed robbery
  • Kidnapping
  • Assault and battery
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Child abuse
  • Domestic violence crimes
  • Sexual battery and rape

Accusation of the above crimes can result in intensive investigations by state or federal law enforcement agencies and result in felony charges with severe penalties. The penalties you will face in any violent actions directed against others will generally lead to harsher punishments than those for nonviolent crimes. Aggravating factors such as the use of deadly weapons or causing bodily injury or death will increase penalties. On the other hand, factors that are called “mitigating” are those that can reduce penalties. An example of a mitigating factor would consist of not acting as the primary actor in the crime.

What are the Penalties for Violent Crimes in Tennessee?

Examples of charges in violent crimes include Class E felony charges for sexual battery, Class B felony charges for aggravated sexual battery, and Class A felony charges for aggravated rape. Aggravated assault is charged as either a Class D or Class C felony. These felony charges can result in prison sentences of a year up to 60 years and fines ranging from $3,000 up to $50,000 depending on the type of crime and the severity of its circumstances.
