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...
Is possible to be convicted of a DUI and be unaware of it?
Today I received a letter from the Dept of Homeland Security that my license had be revoked due to a DUI conviction in Feb of 2012 and that I could reapply for my license on April 17, 2013. I have never been arrested for a DUI or ticketed for the same. I have retained insurance, renewed my registration and license and obtained a professional healthcare license, and passed background checks for work in a ER past that date. I was just accepted to medical school starting in August and am afraid my status with them will be negatively affected by this. Can I be convicted with a DUI without ever being stopped for an alcohol related issue or ever receiving notification of said offense?
No. This sounds like a mistake. You should call the phone number listed on the letter you received and explain you...
Possible DUI but no indication of blood testing from medical records, case to be presented to grand jury
I had a vehicle accident with property damage. There was a beer can in the vehicle at the time of the accident and a loaded gun (I have a carry permit). I was flown to a trauma center. No records from the hospital show any BAC testing. I have not been arrested, and the officer who worked the accident is presenting this to a grand jury. My friends say that I was sober when I left their home just 20 minutes before the accident. I do have a history of passing out, but this has not ever been investigated medically. 1.) Is it typical for BAC blood testing to occur without it showing up on a patient's medical records? Also, 2.) If there is sufficient evidence of DUI, why hasn't the officer just arrested me instead of going to the grand jury?
The reason why there have been no charges is the state is gathering evidence, and presenting it to the grand jury. The...
I have been accused of a first. How can I get a pre-trial diversion? offense DUI
I had not consumed alcohol, but failed the field test. I passed the breath test given at the jail, but found out two Months later I failed the blood sample. I had taken a medication called Hydroxyzine and found out that it is metabolized in the liver and can show up as alcohol in the blood. This is in my medical records, but the D.A. told me I cannot present that in court without an expert witness. What is my alternative?
DUI is not an offense eligible for Diversion in TN. You need to hire a DUI attorney in your area and stop talking to...
I have been charged with a DUI, in Tennessee and I was not operating the vehicle, nor were the keys in the ignition.
I was sleeping, and was woken by the arresting officer. I did not take a breathilizer because I was not operating the vehicle when arrested, not was I pulled over with the vehicle motion. I was forced to give blood a blood sample. That is the most likely outcome with a good defense attorney ? My career is on the line, and operating a company car is required. I must beat this case for possible reinstatement with my current employer, as I have been terminated with out going to court/trial yet.
The State's theory is that you were in physical control of the vehicle and you can be convicted of DUI without actually...
