Specifics about drug sale crimes

The first step in your defense is knowing what charges you are facing and what they mean. The prosecution wants you to be clueless and may even rely on your lack of understanding to win their case. Take the upper hand and work closely with Mr. Crain, so you can fully comprehend the allegations against you.

Tennessee considers a drug sale to be any exchange of drugs for:

  • Money
  • Property
  • Services
  • Favors

Drugs commonly cited in drug sale charges are:

  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Morphine

Drug sale charges escalate if they involve selling:

  • To a minor
  • Within a restricted drug-free zone
  • Large quantities
  • Higher-schedule substances

A felony conviction by legal definition will include at least one year of jail time but can potentially lock you away for life. Fiscal penalties for drug sale convictions will also range from $1,000 to $5,000; under extreme circumstances, Tennessee can fine you for $500,000.
