A violent crime in Tennessee is defined by our criminal code. Basically, it is an aggravated assault. The district attorney's office and various jurisdictions surrounding Tennessee consider these the top crimes to prosecute because that is in a criminal intent to either A, hurt somebody, take something from somebody, or rob somebody with a gun. These cases are prosecuted very toughly, and some of them have significant mandatory minimums of prison.
