WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR CHILD MOLESTATION IN TENNESSEE?
In Tennessee, the nature of offenses related to child molestation, sexual abuse, or the fondling of a child, can result in a litany of charges. For example, the sexual touching of a child under the age of 13 can lead to a charge of aggravated sexual battery. This is typically a class B felony, punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a fine of $25,000.
SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY
Furthermore, a conviction for a sexual offense can affect a person’s livelihood long after prison sentences have been served and fines have been paid. Those found guilty of child molestation will be required to register as a sex offender. The registry is publicly available and can come to affect the places a person may live, the jobs they can hold, and parental responsibilities such as child custody or visitation. Additionally, the social stigma may be impossible to quantify.
