Department of Justice indicts 11 in drug distribution ring

Tennessee residents may be interested to know that at least 11 people have been indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice on conspiracy charges. The nature of the charges revolved around the accused people allegedly conspiring to possess methamphetamine with the intent to distribute it.

Of the 11 individuals that are accused, at least six of them were also charged with conspiring to launder any of the drug proceeds that they would have accumulated. Of the six individuals that were also charged with conspiring to launder the drug proceeds, four of them, in addition to another two individuals, have also been charged with conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute over 500 grams of methamphetamine. The charges faced by these individuals are very serious in nature. If they are convicted, each of them faces a possible life sentence in prison in addition to a $10 million fine.

Of the remaining seven individuals not charged with conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute over 500 grams of methamphetamine, all have been charged with conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine. If convicted, each of them faces the possibility of receiving a sentence of up to 40 years in prison in addition to paying up to a five million dollar fine.

According to reports, in addition to the methamphetamine, police allegedly seized at least four assault rifles and another four handguns as well as a single shotgun from residences that were identified in the course of the investigation. Drug crime related charges, particularly at the federal level, are not only very serious in nature but can result in life behind bars. It is very important for those facing such charges to understand that all charges against them must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt for a conviction. A charge is not the same as a conviction.
