Hello.

Do you know what he is currently charged with?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
As of yet He hasn't been charges. They ask Him to be a confidental informant. He agreed, signed a paper to such. He thought it would involve drug bust. It turns out They want Him to record Someone wanting to hire a hitman, this Someone has appearently already killed Another Person, They want Him admitting that too. My Son is very frightened...He has Wife and Children, and much other Family in that area. The man He is to record has many connections of a bad kind and much money. I thought perhaps He would be better off taking the punishment He has coming.
Expert:  Hammer O'Justice replied 4 years ago.
Thanks for the additional information. For cultivation of less than 10 plants, he is facing a felony that carries 1 to 6 years in jail and/or a $5000 fine. Given that he has a prior drug felony, it is probable that he would get something that is on the higher end of that range.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I was in contact with Just Answer the first part of July, and was given this same info. He was willing to do this time, but He spoke to Our Family Lawyer here in Mo. and was told He would get 8 to 15 years in prison and probably the top end of that if He failed to proceed being a C.I. He's having a hard time wrapping His mind around 15 years. Is it possible Our Lawyer is mistaken? I think there were less then 10 plants...but not positive, and can't call Him at this time as He is at work.
Expert:  Hammer O'Justice replied 4 years ago.
His attorney may be aware of additional charges that could be lodged against him based on information I don't have. But based on the information you have provided, six years is the max. If he had 10 or more plants, the maximum would go up to twelve years. I do agree with the attorney's assessment that the penalty will be at the higher end of the range due to the prior, however.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Would You happen to know...How much time or percentage is served on a sentance before a person is eligable for parole in Tn.

Expert:  Hammer O'Justice replied 4 years ago.
I don't, sorry...it's more of a parole board issue than a court issue, and it will depend on what he is charged with/convicted of.
