What are penalties for violating a protection order in Tennessee?

When it comes to family cases, sometimes tensions run high. Because there may be disputes over other issues, such as child custody, visitation or support, accusations may be leveled that are not entirely based in reality. Because the state wishes to protect its citizens, it may often be fairly easy for a party to receive an order of protection in Tennessee, as the request may be supported simply by the testimony of the alleged victim. When issued, such an order could bar someone from a shared residence or from a place of business. It could also bar someone from coming within a certain distance of a former romantic partner.

Murder vs. manslaughter in Tennessee

The killing of another human being has been one of the most serious acts an individual can commit for about as long as societies have been around. In general, cultures have taboos against taking others' lives because, as a practical matter, individuals' security in their lives creates the basis for societal success. In modern terms, most countries and states create a legal framework covering instances of one person killing another. These acts are grouped under the term 'homicide.'
