Chattanooga Drug Trafficking & Distribution Lawyer
What Is Drug Trafficking in Tennessee?
The federal government and the state of Tennessee take drug trafficking charges very seriously. If you are convicted of drug trafficking, you could face very severe penalties.
Penalties for Drug Trafficking in Tennessee
The penalties for drug trafficking depend on the type of drug, the quantity of the drug, and the purpose for which the drug was trafficked. For example, trafficking marijuana may result in a Class A misdemeanor, while trafficking heroin may result in a Class C felony.
The penalties for drug trafficking can include:
- Community service
- Jail time
In addition, if you are convicted of drug trafficking, you may also be required to forfeit any property that was used in the commission of the crime, including any vehicles, homes, or cash that you used to facilitate the crime. Furthermore, the government may be able to seize any property that it believes is connected to the crime.
