What are the penalties for driving without a license in Tennessee?
I am a KY resident- was in an accident on a TN highway/interstate. Wrecked truck. Trooper came and got our information. I was driving the vehicle but he cited my wife for driving on a suspended license. She is on probation for a DUI. I have NO license, have never been issued one and have never tried to get one. I have a completely clean record besides an infraction in california that is 7 years old. The truck was registered in my wife's name. I've went over the statue involving driving on a suspended, revoked or cancelled license(55-50-504) but have found no information about having no license at all. I also read (55-50-301) stating a license is required but found no penalty. What are the potential penalties for both of us?
I am not licensed in TN or KY, but the statue that applies in CA in such a situation is "driving without a valid...
Can a lawyer get me out of or get my charges reduced on a dui for weed?
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 got busted March 15, 2013 for underage drinking and violation of curfew. Will I loose my DL?
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...
Can you be charged with driving on a dui revolked license when you wasn't even in a car when they got you!
My son got charged with driving on a dui revolked license and was even in a vehicle at the time. they took MY car and said I couldn't get it back that it was seized due to that! In Pikeville Tn.?? How can I get my car back?
all of this sounds odd, but police could have seen your son earlier in the day/week driving your car and know that he...
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?
