My fiance just recently had the law called on him. He was charged with two domestic assaults and vandalism. What would he mostly likely get?
Domestic assault in TN carries up to 11 months and 29 days in jail and you cannot own or possess a gun, bullets, etc ever again (under federal law). Vandalism can carry 11/29 up to 12 years in prison depending on the value of what was broken. Usually its 11/29. Hire an attorney to help him resolve the case.
There is no true answer to "what someone would most likely get." There are maximums and minimums for both domestic assault and vandalism. However, it is ultimately up to the District Attorney to decide what type of plea to offer. He or she could run the domestic assaults concurrently, meaning you only serve the jail time for one, or not. You may get probation or not. In criminal law, you never have a good chance unless you have an attorney handling it for you. Get an attorney.
