It is crucial for people facing drug charges to consider seeking legal assistance. A strong criminal defense team is essential for fighting the charges aggressively in Tennessee, a state that treats felony drug convictions very seriously. Three Tennessee women will need to mount aggressive fights since they are facing felony crystal-meth charges.

Cops say they seized 2.5 ounces of crystal-meth during a recent routine traffic stop. Most of the drug was allegedly found in the purse of a 25-year-old  passenger in one of the vehicles stopped. She was also charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession. The driver, age 35, was also charged with possessing a quantity of the drug as well as driving on a revoked license, improper lane use and driving without insurance. The other charged passenger is 53 years old. 

A 34-year-old male passenger was also arrested on outstanding warrants. A police officer reportedly stopped the vehicle because it was weaving across the fog line. The three women are said to share the same address.

A Tennessee criminal defense attorney may be able to help a client to challenge criminal charges, including the evidence allegedly supporting the formal accusations. A lawyer may also be able to help a client to seek a less damaging outcome should he or she be convicted. A felony drug conviction can have a lasting and serious impact on a person’s life. A lawyer can help to explain the charges and potential penalties to an accused client and help them achieve a favorable result.
