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 penalties am I looking at for my DUI?
I got pulled over a few months ago and got arrested for a DUI and driving on revoked. I had recently taken xanax. The officer said I swerved, which I did. But I believe I swerved because I wasn't looking at the road at the time. I was driving by my sisters work to see if she was there so I could see her for a bit. Anyhow, the officer gave me a field sobriety test and I failed. At the time the pills had not taken effect yet, but I agreed to a blood test. why I don't know, I was under pressure and was kind of scared so I cooperated the best I could. My sentencing is tomorrow, what kind of penalties am I looking at? I had taken 4 xanax bars at the time if that helps
Depends on the coverall circumstances of the arrest. Call a local DUI lawyer for a free consultation.

Can I get a dui charge dropped or reduced in WV. I live in Kingsport, TN. I've been working in WV from out of town.
This is my first offense. I have 2 jobs that require a license. I can't afford to lose my license or even have this on my record. I have a wife 2 kids and my house is about to go into foreclosure amongst other financial issues. The last ticket I've had in the last 5 years was for speeding in the state of VA. The arresting officer pulled me over because I flicked my cigarette out the window. So that was his grounds and then he said I crossed the center line. I blew a < .15 per what my paperwork said which wasn't not disclosed to me at the scene. And then the sobriety test was conducted on a sloping uneven roadway on top of 5 to 10 mph winds which made it difficult to maintain balance with hands at side for both tests.
Unfortunately Tennessee lawyers cannot tell you much… If anything… about a West Virginia DUI. (With one exception)…...
