I was pulled over recently for no seat belt and got a DUI for weed. I had the substance and paraphernalia in my possession. He said I was hesitating so that's why he suspected I was high. He wrote on the citation he smelled it coming from the car. I hadn't smoked it in the car but I had smoked about an hour prior to driving. I got 4 citations. DUI, Paraphernalia, Posession of shedule VI (weed), and no seat belt. I agreed to have blood drawn. It was a state trooper that pulled me over, and he said that it would be pointless for me to get a lawyer. Would getting a lawyer help me out some how?
Get a lawyer unless you want to just eat a DUI without any challenge. Never take legal advice from a cop.
I spent the night at a friends house and we were drinking and we went walking at 1:30a.m. We got stopped by Greenbrier PD. The officers never read us our Miranda Rights. Whenever you get arrested the Police Officers have to read you your rights correct? Will this be on my permanent record? How much are the fines for both charges? And this being my first offense would they drop the charges? When the Officers gave us a breathalizer at the police station it read 0.0 would they drop the charges since I passed it?
You may loose your licenses. How old are you? I assume your under 18 since the curfew violation. As such, had to say...
She has never had a traffic ticket. The officer had blood drawn at the jail and it was sent to TBI. She went back to court in Jan. 2015. "Drug results are not back yet" New date set for April. She hasn't hired an attorney because she didn't have drugs in her system. She was honest with the officer when he asked and told him she had taken her sleep medication early that morning. This was around 3PM. The judge told her she needed to prove to him that she has spoken to 4 attorneys and that she can't afford to pay those attorneys before he would appoint a public defender. After this incident, she lost her job, her home and her dog. She now is working 2 part time jobs and living with her mom. What happened to "innocent until proven guility". The attorney she did consult wanted $2500
I would suggest that you consult with more than one lawyer. In fact, if the judge said four I would follow his orders....
Flipped my jeep, cops came when i was outside of my jeep assessing the damage. They gave me the field sobriety test, went through each test about 3 times. Then he said i'm taking you in for a blood test. Test was given at the jail. I bailed out went to my arraignment and they told me to get a lawyer, said if i didnt have one by the court date i would be representing myself. Just today got back from my court date and they did not give me any information. It basically was the same as the arraignment and they gave me a court appointed lawyer and a new date 3 months down the line. Also received a letter from the dmv stating it was a property damage accident. Just confused why i have not received my b.a.c at either the arraignment or court today and why is the dmv calling it a property accident
In Tennessee your blood alcohol results can take anywhere from three (3) to six (6) months to be returned from the...

You will likely get a citation for driving on a revoked license. If you get lucky, you might get an officer who feels...
I currently reside in Arizona (but moving to TN) and was arrested for suspicion of DUI in Feb 2014. That trial is still pending. I did win the DMV admin hearing and can still drive. My local attorney believes my DUI trial case will be dismissed, but, I have this question: I'm planning on taking a new job in Nashville well before the AZ DUI trial is completed. If I get a TN drivers license and register my car in TN and then I'm later found guilty of DUI in AZ (after I've surrendered my AZ drivers license to the TN DMV), will I be able to drive in TN, or will TN suspend my license (as AZ would have) and force me to install an ignition interlock device? Since I need to drive when I arrive in TN, I'm open to hiring a TN attorney to assist keeping TN driving privileges.
All states entered into an agreement to honor each other's license suspensions. So, in theory, your TN license will be...
