Can I get a job with an arrest on my record?

If you have been arrested in Tennessee whether or not your were eventually convicted and it is now time for you to look for a new job, you understandably may feel concerned about your past arrest potentially getting in the way of you finding the work you want.

If you are like many teens or parents of teens, you may have wondered just what the state's laws about teen sexuality are.

Every person in Tennessee is guaranteed some basic rights even if convicted of a criminal offense.
