Anyone charged with rape, statutory rape, sexual battery, child pornography, child rape or other sexual offenses in Tennessee are facing mandatory jail time, lifetime registration on the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry, sex offender monitoring, and the loss of your reputation and career.
Sex crimes in Tennessee are often based on nothing more than circumstantial evidence. The judge or jury must decide the case based on the credibility of the witnesses, alleged victim and the accused. In some cases, DNA or other scientific evidence will play a central role in proving that our client is absolutely innocent.
