Defense Of Tennessee Drug-Free School Zone Act Charges

At the Law Office of Rob McKinney, we are experienced in defending clients charged under Tennessee's Drug-Free School Zone Act. This act enhances the penalties for felony drug crimes committed within 1,000 feet of a school, day care or park.

For example, if you were arrested for possession of a half ounce of marijuana, you could expect to pay a fine and serve a year of probation. If you were convicted of the very same offense in a drug-free school zone, however, you might serve two years in jail without an option of parole.

Aggressive Prosecution

District attorneys are extremely aggressive in using this act to prosecute anyone selling, possessing or transporting drugs. If you were arrested while driving, they will plot the route you traveled on a map. If you happened to drive through a drug-free school zone, they will seek enhanced charges under the Drug-Free School Zone Act. In some instances, they will follow your vehicle and wait until you have driven through such a zone before pulling you over to make the arrest.

Police and prosecutors will interpret the law in a way that is most disadvantageous to the accused. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will help balance the scales of justice. Attorney Rob McKinney will protect your rights and fight for a positive outcome in your case.
