Operating a Meth Lab

Nashville Drug Crime Defense Attorneys

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.

If you have been arrested for operating a meth lab, the odds may seem stacked against you. It is important to remember, however, that you still have the right to legal counsel. You are also protected against illegal searches and seizures by law enforcement. If your constitutional rights were violated in any way during or after the investigation or your arrest, this could be used to render evidence inadmissible or even dismiss your charges altogether.

Find out more about your rights in the face of meth lab charges by contacting May McKinney at (615) 265-6383. Our seasoned attorneys defend clients across Nashville and all of Tennessee.

Meth Manufacturing Penalties in Tennessee

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 1 year in prison and a $1,000 fine for merely purchasing more than 3.6 grams of pseudoephedrine per day or 9 grams in 30 days (a crime called smurfing).

Challenging Meth Lab Arrests & Charges in Franklin, Brentwood, Mount Juliet & the Surrounding Areas

If you think you may be suspected of meth manufacturing or if you have already been charged with this offense, May McKinney may be able to help. Our Nashville meth lab defense attorneys can promptly launch an investigation designed to test the state's evidence against you. We can use our extensive knowledge of drug search and seizure law to determine if law enforcement officers may have violated your constitutional rights. If so, we could 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 lawyer. You could inadvertently give police the probable cause they need to arrest you.
