What is the statue of limitations on elder abuse in the state of Tennessee?
Hello Jacustomer,

In Tennessee, elder abuse would be a class E felony Here is the statute under which this crime would be charged.

The statute of limitations on a Class E felony in Tennessee would be two years from the commission of the offense. If it was ongoing over a period of time, it would be two years from when the abuse stopped.
