Memphis, Tennessee Criminal Defense Overview
The State of Tennessee is notoriously strict in its policy of arresting and prosecuting alleged criminal offenders. This zealousness can result in questionable stops, searches and seizures that can sometimes constitute violations of the United States Constitution and the Tennessee Constitution as well. As such, procedural as well as fact based defenses may be available to individual who has been charged with a crime. In Memphis and along the I-40 corridor through Fayette, Haywood and other West Tennessee counties, this has been particularly true in drug interdiction cases in which a motorist is stopped under the pretext of a traffic offense, is coerced into permitting a vehicle search and drugs or other contraband are discovered. Unless the purpose for stopping the individual is legitimate and not the result of, say, profiling, the search should be deemed illegal by the Court and the seized evidence suppressed.
