Tennessee Violent Crime Penalties

Arson, assault, vehicular homicide, and murder are just a few of the criminal offenses that are categorized as violent crimes. Penalties for violent crimes will generally be much harsher than the penalties imposed for non-violent crimes. Mitigating circumstances or facts presented by the firm at trial can help reduce a sentence or lead to a reduction in charges, a dismissal of charges, or an acquittal at trial.

If certain aggravating factors exist, you will likely be facing more substantial penalties and a lengthier prison sentence. Aggravated assault is an example of a Class C felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison and fines not to exceed $10,000. Murder is an example of a Class A felony punishable by up to $50,000 in fines and the possibility of a mandatory life sentence.
