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...
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)…...
If a person has had 2 DUI's within 3 weeks, what should happen?
Our entire family has been waiting for my motherinlaw to go to jail, because everyone knows she is a drug user/dealer. We have been waiting on either her going to jail, or her to be found dead (obviously we don't want her dead). We all got excited that maybe going to jail would help her get clean and change her life - but we were wrong. Originally, she was caught with Morphine pills crushed in a grinder, 15 cell phones, and over 5 credit cards with multiple names on them. For some reason she is only being charged for the DUI. She had previously gotten a DUI around 2 -3 weeks earlier and got probation. Her court date is a whole 6-7 months away and meanwhile she is driving around as usual, putting countless lives in danger. Please help!
She faces a decent amount of jail time and a substantial fine if convicted. She needs an attorney - jail is no place...
I just found out I owe $55 to state CA, when DUI was is FL. In '10 I turned in CA license, got new driver license in Fl after
after '09 DUI. Just tried to get TN license, found out CA license on hold until I show I completed everything for DUI and pay $55. I had moved to FL, it happened in FL, I don't have any paperwork, FL gave me a driver's license.... what's going on?
You didn't list the exact date of the DUI or when you got the FL license, but my feeling is that your DUI was committed...
