Will a DUI conviction in TN prevent me from purchasing a firearm for any length of time?
I was charged with DUI 1st in TN almost 3 months ago but I have not been convicted yet. My BAC results have not come back yet and I am returning to court in a week. If I am convicted I assume I will be put on some sort of probation. If convicted and placed on probation will I be prohibited from purchasing a firearm for the duration of probation? I have a lawyer representing me, is there any chance of getting the charges reduced and avoiding probation altogether?
You should ask you lawyer about the chance of getting the charges reduced. As far as the firearm is concerned, it is my...
Can my son get a DWI charge dropped due to the fact that he wasn't even in a vehicle when they charged him?
My son was out celebrating valentines day with his wife, they had an alternation, he left and went to a bar, he was there less than 5 mins, the police pulled him out of the bar and charged him with DWI. They asked him if he drove to the bar. He said "Yes." Then they arrested him.
The state must prove he was intoxicated while he was operating the vehicle. If they can prove that, it doesn't matter...
What happens if I move to Chicago with a pending DUI charge to Chicago?
I was arrested under suspicion of a dui on 1/1/15. The case has been continued two times because the arresting officer failed to show up and the judge didn't want to dismiss. He then set another court date out in October. I'm moving to Chicago the beginning of May. What happens if I do get charged and I'm a resident of Chicago in terms of consequences? The DA won't budge or accept a plea bargain for wreckless driving so I can get this over with before I move. He's young and on a power trip so maybe I'll have luck with the new DA in October. Either way I'd like to prepare for the worst, any insight to how this will play out is very much appreciated.

Help needed on DUI and false statements. I am more concerned about my false statements than my DUI. Please help me.
1. Written report of accident 2. DUI, reckless driving 3. False reports(, I started telling stories like ‘car might have been stolen’, ‘I am not the one who crashed car’ etc. ) My questions are, 1. Is it typical for cops to charge under many charges like above 2. Does judge typically sentence me on DUI or all of the above 3. I don’t think cops told me about mirandize. Can cops still use whatever I told? Do they typically have video recorded? As far as I know, it didn’t look like they recorded anything 4. My bail was 800$ and I don’t have incidents earlier. Based on these facts, what would be typical punishment(I am in TN)? 5. Regarding property(a bank) damage, bank hasn’t contacted anyone yet. is that okay if I wait for someone to raise about it or should I have to contact bank/police?

What duty does one have to inform police of communicable disease?
Got stopped at DUI checkpoint coming home from chemo. I was a passenger and was told to get out of the car. I felt weak and tried, but could not. A female cop got angry and yanked me out, calling me a drug addict. The sudden movement made me puke all over her. I am a carrier of p-vivax malaria. I did not realize the puke was blood until I got home. I went to ER. My malaria had come out of remission, due to my reduced immune system. As a carrier, I know that the blood of malaria patients is highly infectious. I did not tell ER doctor about the cop incident. Do I have a legal duty to tell the doctor or the cop?
Sorry to hear about your health. I am not licensed in Tennessee, but regardless of whether you have a legal duty to...
