I had less than a quarter gram of meth on my persons in January 2016. An my lawyer had my misdemeanor charge bound over to the grand jury. What kind of time am I looking at?
Why don't you ask your lawyer. He or she knows the facts of your case and the criminal procedure of Tennessee. Why would you want an online opinion from someone that can only be based on speculation?See question

I am being charged with felony false imprisonment and battery family violence, if I go to court and plead guilty to the battery could we get the felony reduced or even dropped?

My husband was arrested in Simpson county at a road block. And he was charged with felony possession of controlled substance assumed to be methamphetamine. I was just wondering what that means and what kind of sentencing is he facing.
