Tennessee statutory rape law is violated when a person has consensual sexual intercourse with an individual under age 18. A close in age exemption allows teens ages 13-18 to consent to partners less than 4 years older. Punishments differ depending on the ages of victim and offender.

the above is Tennessee statutory rape law. I would find out exactly what the contact was between the two. Since she is under 13, the close in age exemption does not apply. If there was indeed (hopefully not) sexual contact, you may be able to formally prosecute. If not, he was at least trespassing and attempting to break and enter. I would proceed toward a restraining order immediately and not take no for an answer.
