My son was charged with simple possession on 2/7; then DUI (not alcohol but pot) on 2/14--I bonded him out for that one; then 2nd DUI (again smoking pot) and another simple possession on 3/8. I did not bond him out for this one. He has not been to any hearings yet for any of them since it has all happened in about a month. Since I did not bond him out for the 2nd DUI how does the 10 hold apply and one DUI was in Humphries County and the 2nd DUI was in Dickson County. He has no money so he will need to ask for public defender--how does that work? If first court date for the 1st DUI is set for 3/19 which is close to the 10 day mark but it is in Humphries County and he is in jail in Dickson County. Unfortunately, I do not have the money for an attorney but am confused how it works.
Different jurisdictions in Tennessee interpret and implement the "10 Day Rule" differently. The rule is designed to...
My boyfriend was on probation for driving on a suspended revoked drivers licenses. Its his 5 offence. We tried to get him back and forth to his po. But the car broke down and due to the economy we both lost our jobs. The po office is 15 miles away or better a little more than walking distance. How could we get his probation reinstated?? And would it do any good if we paid off probation fee's and court cost in advance?
Assuming your boyfriend was represented by an attorney on his underlying charge, speaking to that attorney is a good...

NO. You are going to have to go to PA to serve time. TN has no dog in this fight.

Is it legal to sell a vehicle to someone whose DL is under suspension for DUI? The vehicle cannot be insured.
I financed a vehicle and had my full coverage insurance dropped because my co-signer, whose name was applied as co-owner, has a suspended DL for DUI. I had no idea that the co-signer's name would be applied in this way when I purchased the vehicle. Furthermore, had I known that the co-signer was not insurable, I would not have purchased the vehicle in the first place. Since I cannot insure this vehicle, the loan will go into default and the vehicle will be repossessed. I cannot re-finance the vehicle myself, so I cannot have the co-signer's name removed. Do I have any recourse other than biting the bullet on this one?
If you can sell the car for more than owe you are in the clear.
Will a previous reduction of DUI to reckless driving from 8 years ago be held against me for my current DUI charge in TN.
Previous DUI reduction was in Nashville, current DUI was in Tullahoma. I did not consent to the test for the first charge from 8 years ago and did not consent to the blood test this time either, however the officer obtained a warrant and blood was drawn. I performed the standard 3 roadside tests and the officer even said that obviously you are not slurring your words or falling down drunk but I believe you may be over the legal limit. The blood test will likely show that I was over the limit and there is a possibility that another substance may show up as well. My goal is just to retain my driving priviledges as i am pharma rep and drive for my job. If i obtain a very good DUI lawyer what are my chances of possibly being lucky enough to get another reckless plea. Any advice greatly appreci
Yes and no. The good thing about the prior reduction is that the current DUI cannot be classified as a DUI 2nd Offense,...
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...
