Dawsonville Law

I was convicted of a dui in TN in 1999 with a 0.3 BAC, I was arrested in a dry county. I paid all my fines and completed my community service within the time specified. I was and still am in the US Army. After I completed my requirements i was deployed to Korea for the next year. 2 Months ago I got a letter stating that I would have a warrant for my arrest if I did not contact the sheriffs office. Upon doing so they told me that i did not contact my probation officer like I was told to and they have not been able to contact me until now (even though I am still in the Army). They want me to complete another 40 hours of community service and pay a court fee. Because this was 14 years ago I no longer have the records to prove myself. Can they do this or should I try to fight it?
I advise that you direct this to TN criminal defense attorneys. Notwithstanding, based on your facts, you may be able...
Finding no alcohol or drugs, I was arrested for DUI drugs.The reason I did poor is due to my previously broken femur bone. My miranda rights were not read and no one informed me that by refusing to give urine aren't blood, that I would lose my liscense for a year. I aslo was not informed that I have 10 days to get a permit to drive to and from work and appointments. I was incarcerated for 11 days and missed that grace period. My wife has a brain tumor n seizures, plus I have a 4 yr old that we can't get to pre school. So far, I have not been indited yet and nobody seems to be able to help me with my liscense or tell me what is going on. What are my options? I lost my job and my wife can't drive due to her seizure disorder.
If you were incarcerated for 11 days, that should justify the delay in sending the ALS hearing request. Get an attorney...
When I was arrested for DUI I submitted to a breathalyzer and blew over the legal limit. I am now attempting to compose a hearing request but I am a little thrown off by the "statement of facts upon which the contested case arises" and "a statement setting forth the relief sought." I'm not sure how much detail/explanation is expected of me and I don't want to provide too much or too little. I cannot afford a lawyer and I can't find any guidance on composing the request myself. I know that there's only a 10 day window to request a hearing and I'm running out of time.
It appears you are working with the DDS provided form. You are not required to give the facts requested. My advise is...
my husband was arrested for DUI because he refused to take field soberity tests, breathelizer, and BAC after the officer stated they were zero tolerance. He and I did have 2 and 1/2 beers over 3.5 hour and dinner. After they arrested my husband the officer that stayed with me because I refused tests as well kept asking me to take the hand held breathilizer. I finally did and blow a .03. He was happy because now he could leave me. but if they are zero tolerance why was I not arrested and allowed to drive away?
The legislature decided many years back to enforce a harsher license suspension for people who refuse to submit to a...
I am a 60 year old woman who needs to have my license reinstated but can not afford the expense. I live with my daughter who is a single parent of 2 children. She works everyday and has a lot of running around her own self with her children and errands she has to do. After my 2nd DUI 08/18/2011 I completed the Risk Reduction Class... Did the clinical treatment class... Did my court ordered time for community service...and do not have any other traffic violations. I have waited over 4 years to try and reinstate my license just to find out I have to do all of this again. How can I get these expenses wavered?
It may not be possible. Otherwise, as I'm sure you'll understand, there would be no cost to DUI and folks would...
One was on Federal property and a wreck was involved. There was never any evidence that said I had been drinking but I was convicted anyway I hadn't been drinking but I am tired of trying to convence people to that fact; the cause of the accident was deer. The second in 2010 was on a moped- not on a major road- in which case I was drunk. This DUI charge in 2015 was Dui less safe alcohol and dui less safe marjuana in which I had not smoked despite the charge. What am I to do? Both DUI charges in 2010 were reduced to reckless driving. This charge of DUI in 2015 is still pending.
Prior CHARGES of DUI are not admissible unless you were convicted.
My Dad was charged with DUI. There were no witnesses, and not even the cop saw what happened. My Dad was off the road, his scooter fell into a ditch, and he was trying to lift it out . A cop pulled up and did not see anything that happened. My Dad told the cop he was riding the bike and crashed into the ditch, and had a little to drink. Then the cop gave him a breath test and he failed. Is there any way to get my Dad's testimony thrown out, since it may not have been credible due to diminished capacity from alcohol consumption? The cop did not even see him riding, there is no other evidence except for my Dad's drunken testimony.
Based on the facts you provided, i think there is circumstantial evidence that your dad was driving the scooter,...
