Throughout the state of Tennessee, criminal offenses relating to drugs are a serious matter. Tennessee takes these kinds of allegations extremely seriously, will prosecute the accused vigorously and punish those who are convicted. Because of this, it is essential that an individual does not hesitate to hire the legal assistance of a skilled Knoxville, Tennessee, criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
Drug offenses in Tennessee carry the very real possibility of mandatory jail time, substantial fines and a felony conviction on your record. An individual charged with drug trafficking, drug conspiracy, manufacture, sale or delivery, simple possession or possession of drug paraphernalia needs an attorney experienced in defending drug offenses.
Fees and penalties for drug crimes can vary based on the seriousness of the criminal offense and the quantity and kind of narcotic involved, as well as the type of charge, whether possession, distribution, growing, or manufacturing. Being successfully convicted of a drug offense could lead to stiff penalties and consequences, such as prolonged stays in jail and large fines.
These types of fees and penalties must not be taken lightly, and if convicted, will have an immediate impact that could last the rest of your life.
