Penalties for rape in Tennessee

In the state of Tennessee, nearly any sort of non-consensual sexual contact can be charged as rape. This includes having sex with a minor, forcing someone to perform sexual acts under duress, and engaging in sexual contact with a child under 12 years of age. Every form of rape is a felony offense, though more egregious offenses such as using a weapon to coerce a young child into having sex can bring the most serious penalties.

If convicted of rape, a person can face the following consequences:

  • Up to 60 years in prison
  • Fines up to $50,000
  • Permanent inclusion on the National Sex Offender Registry

A conviction for nearly every type of sex crime in Tennessee can require sex offender registration, causing serious long-term harm to a person’s employment and housing prospects. With stakes this high, if you are facing allegations of rape, it is vital that you retain the services of a powerful defense attorney that can zealously defend your freedom against the prosecution’s claims.
