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 My license was revoked for dui.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...
Grandkids Mom going to trial for 3rd DUI in a 16 mths- just got custody of her kids from DCS - will she get out of this too
It is her 3rd DUI in 16 months - she refused the "deal" and now has court / trial next week. 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...
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 Williamson Co - is it better to do DUI Court Program w/Treatment or do jail time and face losing license - Help!
I've heard their is a new law that will allow you to reduce a 2nd to a 1st limiting your license revocation to only restricted even in the first year. I cant find anything on this law. I am looking at a 2nd within 5 years in Williamson Co. I can not adhere to all of the restrictions of DUI Court and maintain my very busy job. They require 28days treatment instead of jail which is doable, but then 2 times a week mandatory drug testing and appear in front of judge once a week. All of this during working hours! I am considering taking my chances with taking jail time. I have an attorney, but even he doesn't understand the new law. He seems to think I have to do DUI Court Program to qualify for reduction of license revocation. I have to drive to keep my job. Help.
There is no law that allows for this. When a DUI 2nd is reduced to a first, it is due to the discretion of the...
Am I able to obtain a valid driver's license in a different state if mine was revoked in the state I live in now?
My license was revoked in 2009 in Franklin, Tennessee for being charged with a third offense DUI. I plan on moving to a different state and want to know if I can get a license in the state I move to. If this is possible, which states allow this, if any?
Most states are part of the Interstate Driver's License Compact. Under the Compact, each state will honor a revocation...
Can certain food/alcohol combinations raise your BAC due to fermentation due to a lengthier arrest/blood test?
The night of my DUI I had a meal including plenty of (potato) salad with lots of (grapes) in it. I had (champagne) to drink. Potatoes and grapes ferment into alcohol. The champagne has bubbles. My BAC came back .20. I couldn't understand how that could be. It took a while to get to the hospital to draw my blood. Could this food/alcohol combination have fermentation properties that could have affected my BAC?
Man...Life would rock if we had the alcohol producing bacteria in our GI system!!! No, that is not a possibility. The...
