I am so sorry to hear that. Generally, judges will show some degree of leniency when it is a first time offense. However, it is important that she have an experienced criminal defense attorney representing her and one that has experience in this particular court with this judge and this prosecutor. Those relationships can help minimize sentencing. The only caveat is unless Tennessee law has some sort of minimum mandatory sentencing for drug-related offenses.
