Assault – In Tennessee, there are three types of behavior that constitute an assault: hurting someone, threatening to hurt someone, and touching someone in an extremely offensive way.

Aggravated Assault – This form of assault is punished more severely due to its seriousness. An assault can be raised to the level of aggravated if a weapon is used, if there is serious bodily injury to the victim, and depending on the intent of the perpetrator.

Robbery – Robbery is a more serious type of theft because it includes violence, or the threat of violence, to a victim. This type of crime always involves a victim who is threatened or receives bodily harm.

Murder/Homicide – Homicide and murder occur when someone takes the life of another. However, not all homicides are murder, but all murders are homicides. Homicide can be negligent, or not on purpose. Murders typically require intent by the perpetrator.

Domestic Violence – Violent acts committed by a family or household member against another is considered domestic violence. Domestic violence is most commonly seen as child abuse or mistreatment of one’s spouse or intimate partner.

Stalking – The crime of stalking is simply described as an unwanted pursuit of another person. By nature, this is not a one-time event, but a repeated pattern of pursuit intended to cause harm or distress.
