Domestic Violence Archives

Neighbors rally to defense of arrested Tennessee State Trooper

When Chattanooga TV news reports on local arrests, they often do little more than echo what they have been told by law enforcement. We recently saw a welcome departure from one-sided approach in a report by a station about 150 miles west of Chattanooga.

Reuben Foster's ex admits that she lied about domestic violence

People in Tennessee who follow NFL news might be interested in learning that Reuben Foster, the 24-year-old linebacker who was charged with felony domestic violence in February, has been cleared of the charges against him. According to news sources, Foster's ex-girlfriend admitted that she lied to the police when she accused Foster of hitting her.

What's needed to protect the accused from police body cams?

Police body camera use is the subject of a great deal of debate. We have touched on some of the issues in previous posts, most recently in June. Earlier still, in 2015, we highlighted how police authorities then were concerned about the growing pressure to use these devices.

Employer-initiated restraining orders

If you have been accused of violence or abuse of any form by a spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend or other significant person in your life in Tennessee, you will want to understand some of the basic laws that govern these types of allegations. You may have been told by your significant other that they will try to get a restraining order to keep you away from them. While this may or may not be possible, you should know that they are not the only ones who can seek such an order.

Man accused of double murder

Tennessee residents who are accused of crimes that involve some sort of violence against other people understandably can have a lot of questions about the defense process and how it works. A conviction for this type of offense may have serious penalties with impacts in a person's life for even longer than the duration of the penalties. One important thing is for a defendant to remember that every person is due a fair defense when charged with a crime.

State ranks poorly for alleged domestic violence deaths

Domestic violence is a serious issue that deserves special attention. That attention understandably centers largely around the people alleged to have been victims of such abuse. However, attention is also deserved to be given to people accused of these acts. As with any criminal charges, an allegation does not automatically prove a person guilty as many circumstances may ultimately affect such a determination.
