State & Federal Drug Trafficking Charges
Drug trafficking offenses fall under both state and federal law. These separate courts have differing definitions of this offense as well as different penalties.
Under Tennessee law, drug trafficking consists of:
- Knowingly manufacturing a controlled substance
- Delivering a controlled substance
- Selling a controlled substance or
- Possessing a controlled substance with the intent to manufacture, deliver, or sell it
Penalties for a state trafficking charge will depend on the type and quantity of drug and other statutory factors. Charges can range from a Class E felony up to a Class A felony. Penalties can range from 1 to 6 years in prison for the former and 15 to 60 years in prison for the latter.
Federal trafficking charges come into play when drugs cross state lines. Federal penalties for a first offense range from five to 40 years in prison with fines of up to $5 million for individuals and $25 million for groups. Repeat offenders will face even stiffer prison sentences and higher fines.
Factors that can aggravate your charges include dealing with drugs in areas where children congregate and other relevant circumstances. Trafficking may also result in conspiracy charges.
