Only the government – not crime victims – may press charges and prosecute crimes. However, crime victims have a right to sue the alleged criminal in a civil action for whatever damages they have suffered from the crime.

ACLU-TN’s Victims’ Rights Resource Sheet provides information about the Tennessee Constitution’s protections for victims of crimes as well as national and statewide resources.
