New laws
Two laws recently passed by the Tennessee General Assembly have given the state’s judges new tools to help protect victims of domestic violence. Judges can now order wireless telephone service providers to grant domestic violence victims control over their own cell phone numbers if those cell phone numbers are on an account held by an alleged abuser. It went into effect on April 18. The other law changes the way that courts respond to the arrests of alleged perpetrators of domestic violence. If a court finds probable cause that an alleged perpetrator “caused serious bodily injury” or “used or displayed a weapon,” then a judge will issue a “no contact order” to keep the perpetrator away from the victim. That no contact order will be added as a mandatory condition of the perpetrator’s bond and will be in addition to a requested civil order of protection. It goes into effect on July 1.
