Domestic assault allegations affect your life and your freedom

It is an unpleasant fact that people are sometimes of accused of criminal acts they did not commit. Allegations of domestic assault run rampant in Tennessee -- some of them are legitimate, but many of them are not. What you need to understand is that any allegations of domestic assault will have an effect on your life, even without a conviction.

In the state of Tennessee, if police officials are called to the scene of a domestic dispute, someone will go to jail. Depending upon the elements of the case, this incarceration could be lengthy. For example, a court sent one Tennessee citizen to jail for two years after his wife made false allegations of domestic violence. His case had extenuating circumstances, namely that he was on parole at the time of the accusation, but it is still a good example of the seriousness of all domestic assault allegations.
