Law enforcement departments in Tennessee seize approximately 2,000 meth labs per year, ranging from small "shake and bake" operations for personal use to larger operations that produce meth in quantity for sale. Only Missouri has more meth lab busts than Tennessee.
At the Law Office of Rob McKinney in Nashville, we have defended people charged with drug crimes since 1994. If you have been arrested for operating a meth lab, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your options.
Defending You From Manufacturing Meth Charges In Nashville
Tennessee views meth as its most serious drug problem. As a result, the penalties can be extremely harsh, even for a first-time offense. For example, if you are convicted of operating a meth lab in a house where there is a child under the age of eight, you could face 15-25 years in prison.
You could face up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine simply for purchasing more than 3.6 grams of pseudoephedrine per day or 9 grams in a 30-day period (a crime called smurfing).
If you think you may be suspected of meth manufacturing or if you have already been charged with this offense, our law firm can help. Nashville meth lab defense attorney Rob McKinney will promptly launch an investigation designed to test the state's evidence against you. For example, Mr. McKinney can use his extensive knowledge of drug search and seizure law to determine if law enforcement officers may have violated your constitutional rights. If so, we could potentially get the charges either reduced or dismissed.
If you are contacted by law enforcement, you should not say anything until you consult with an experienced defense lawyer. You could inadvertently give police the probable cause they need to arrest you.
