Rape Charges In Tennessee

When an individual engages in forcible sexual relations with another individual, against his or her will, it is rape. Mutual consent does not involve any type of force or coercion. If an individual does not give his or her direct consent for sexual penetration or intercourse, sex crime charges can be filed.

The same is true with victims who have some type of mental incapacity or have otherwise been rendered physically helpless. Rape is a felony offense which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and fines up to $20,000. In cases where the victim is a minor, the accused could be facing a life sentence.
