Was arrested for DUI in TN and refused chemical test although the officer obtained a warrant and I had to take one anyway. I feel that the results will show that I was over the legal limit and my also show another chemical in my system as well. I was told the blood test could take 4-6 months to come back and was wondering if it was possible with a good DUI attorney to plea down to a lesser charge such as reckless driving before the results of the test come back.
Yes. When I was a prosecutor, I would routinely plea cases before the blood was back. Will a DA do so with a prior...
Was arrested for DUI/Implied consent 8 years ago and had the DUI reduced to reckless driving and lost my license for a year for the implied consent. Was unfortunately arrested again this weekend for DUI and I did not consent to the chemical test again althought the officer did obtain a warrant and made me take a blood test. I will be hiring the best DUI attorney I can find but I am a medical sales rep and I am terrified that I will lose my job if they find out. I am ok with driving on a restricted license but I frequently have upper management and other clients ride along with me so unfortunately the interlocking device would be the nail in the coffin for my employment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
While a second offense for implied consent is a criminal matter, you are likely not looking at any jail time on the...
I was convicted of DWAI in the state of Colorado in early 2010. I just moved to central Tennessee and received a DUI. Because I've only been in TN for 2 months, I was still carrying my CO driver's license. Will my DWAI from CO be recognized in TN, and if so, will I face jail time?
If Tennessee discovers your Colorado DWAI, it may be used as an enhancement. I would recommend obtaining a TN driver's...
I got my second DUI in Brentwood back in 2005. First offense was in Ohio, 2004. I ” lived” in TN during time of offense but wa s only in state about 75 days a year due to work. Flew back for court date, got 45 days in jail...3months later. Had flight back to check in and it was canceled. Called court was told ” oh well”. Living in hell not driving and always paranoid for 6 years. I NEED TO HANDLE THIS NOW AND GET ON WITH MY LIFE. How much extra time am I looking at. No run ins with law since. Anyone have an answer to extra time?? Anyone have a good solution?? I will call the first respondant and get things going.
In Williamson county your failure to report for your jail time will most likely result in two additional charges a...
I was on probation for driving on a suspended license it was two cases I was sentenced to flatten both my cases but they would run concurrent I never turned myself in it's been 3 years and i want to turn myself in now but I'm trying to see if I will get the same sentence or if I need to get an attorney to avoid more jail time.
I'm confused. You were on probation and you violated? What did you never turn yourself in on?
I was given the opportunity to get a restricted license but couldn't afford the fees to get the license. My only legal issue ever was the dui.
Jail time is certainly a strong possibility - especially if you are revoked for DUI. Contact a lawyer in Williamson...

She has been running wild for 3 years - walked out on all 4 children ages 2-6 and puts on a great front in court... she always seems to get out of everything... failed drug tests while on probation, no place to live, bounces kids all over the place but DCS wanted to keep giving her chances.. meanwhile she got off probation in April, for the 2 DUI's and got 1 DUI and 2 driving on revoked in a few months - she never installed her interlock and continues to still drive the kids around... how do people like her keep avoiding jail and what can be done so she has consequences before she hurts her kids or others in her path....DCS was certainly was no help. if convicted, how long till she goes to jail
I doubt she'll walk away from this. Keep in mind though that we are criminal defense attorneys here and not...
