What Are Constructive Possession Charges in TN?
What if no one claims the drugs or other illegal items?
In Tennessee, when no one claims the drugs or paraphernalia, the police can charge more than one person or even all persons present. This is known as constructive possession and it happens all the time in and around the Nashville Metro area. Under Tennessee law, the courts may also convict everyone who is charged with constructive possession for possession of the same items. Options for defending these constructive possession charges vary dramatically depending on the individual situation and circumstances involved.
