Is it possible to plea down a DUI in TN before the results of a blood test come back.
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...
In Tennessee, can you face jail time for a 2nd implied consent? Will I have to install an interlocking device?
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...
2nd DUI Offense; Different State but Same CO Driver's License
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 just found out I owe $55 to state CA, when DUI was is FL. In '10 I turned in CA license, got new driver license in Fl after
after '09 DUI. Just tried to get TN license, found out CA license on hold until I show I completed everything for DUI and pay $55. I had moved to FL, it happened in FL, I don't have any paperwork, FL gave me a driver's license.... what's going on?
You didn't list the exact date of the DUI or when you got the FL license, but my feeling is that your DUI was committed...
I was issued a citation for driving on a revoked license in TN. My license was revoked for dui. Will I get jail time?
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...
Will my sentence change?
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?
