What Is Domestic Assault?
Domestic assault differs from other forms of assault due to the close relationship between the victim and the offender. Assault is broken down into simple assault and aggravated assault. Simple assault is defined as causing intentional bodily injury, fear of bodily injury, or offensive physical contact. Aggravated assault includes the added elements of using or displaying a deadly weapon, attempting or causing injury by strangulation, or attempting or causing harm while under an order that prohibits these forms of contact.
These allegations are serious and require a criminal defense attorney who can customize a defense for your specific case.
Tennessee law considers domestic assault to be between:
- Adult or minor child or other family members
- Current or former spouses
- Current or former living partners or roommates
- Current or former dating or sexual partners
- Relatives by blood or adoption
Depending on the details of a case, a person convicted of domestic assault may face up to 15 years in prison, a fine up to $10,000, loss of the right to carry a firearm, an additional fine to fund family violence and shelter programs, and restitution to the alleged victim.
