Twelve people arrested on drug charges in one Tennessee county

Criminal charges of any form can seriously impact the rights and freedoms that a person may enjoy into the future. If they are arrested they may be forced to expend time and money to defend themselves against their charges, and if they are convicted they may face serious penalties such as incarceration or fines. While some readers may believe serious crimes like murder and assault comprise the bulk of law enforcement officials' efforts to prevent harm to the public, many arrests for alleged drug crimes are made each and every day.

For example, Franklin County, Tennessee, recently reported that 12 people were arrested on a variety of drug charges during a single week in January. The alleged crimes committed by the individuals ranged from drug manufacturing and delivery to drug possession, sales, and exchanges. The ages of the arrested individuals were across the board, from 22 years of age to 61 years of age. Their arrests occurred in different towns and on different days.

Put simply, law enforcement officers take alleged drug crimes seriously and make many arrests to stop what they believe is the illegal use and sale of illicit substances. Those who are arrested for drug crimes should not operate under the assumption that their charges are minor or less significant that those alleging violent conduct.

Drug crime arrests can be stressful and confusing for those who do not understand the criminal justice system. In order to ensure that one has an effective and comprehensive defense plan prepared in anticipation of their trial, they may wish to work with a criminal defense attorney to guide them through their drug charges.
