Why are there so many differences in the sentences of people who are convicted of dui vehicular homicide in the country?
I pleaded no contest to dui vehicular homicide on a plea deal. Of course I am whining but I am not making light of the situation, someone did lose their life. The prosecutor made it a point to say at the end of the sentencing that fault had not been determined. I take responsibility for my choices that night. My problem is with the felony and the felony disenfranchisement. I worked for 20 plus years in a hospital and the only skills I have are medical. The state of TN revoked my license and the DHHS sent a letter saying I could no longer work anywhere that is reimbursed by medicaid or medicare. I made roughly 30-40,000 a year. Why do numerous politicians, actors and athletes get to keep their livelyhoods while the general public have theirs stripped away?
This is probably a question you should be talking with a politician or lobbyist about. The penalties for DUI outside...

Hypothetically, the state does not have the evidence to present at trial, and the state hypothetically loses.
I was pulled over for failure to maintain my lane after someone called in on me and i was charged with a DUI. What are my option
I don't believe the officer had probable cause to pull me over. In his statement he said I made a wide right turn into oncoming traffic which did not happen, I was on Alcoa hwy and only made the turn when he pulled me over. I drank the night before not that day. I offered to take the breathalyser and he said no, they only do blood tests which I refused so the officer arrested me and had a magistrate sign a warrant to take my blood. If they did not have cause to pull me over can all this be dismissed? I have two cases, one with Alcoa traffic court for failure to maintain my lane and the other with Blount County for DUI
If they did not have probable cause to pull you over, you may be able to defend the DUI charge. I think it sounds like...

Last Tuesday 10-22-2013, I went to probation, which I am currently on for a DUI, and had to take a drug test. I failed. My probation officer told me she was going to issue a warrant and had me come back yesterday 10-29-13. I went to the court that morning prior to going to probation to pay the rest of my monthly fee, and I will assume the warrant isn't on record yet because I walked back out. Then at probation my P.O. Told me again that i have a warrant? I live almost an hour away from the county I should have a warrant out for me in, and i obviously don't have a valid DL considering my original charge so going up everyday is not an option. I am a single mother of two children and I Want to turn myself in so my children do not have to see me taken out by the police. What do I do?
You need to hire a lawyer right away. A failed drug test violation could lead to jail time. Depending on the county,...
At the time of the accident, I was 14 weeks pregnant. I incurred medical costs associated with ER visit that day for $922. I spent the remainder of my pregnancy worried about the health and wellbeing of my unborn child. I delivered at full term – 42 weeks and 2 days but had a very traumatic labor. I was billed for $6011 in charges for the initial 12 hours of my labor at one facility. Then I was transferred to another facility and billed $8758.46. I was given pitocin and three epidurals (one which was a partial spinal) and none of them worked. I believe all this was due to the stress of the accident in May and the continual stress throughout my pregnancy about the health of my child as a result of the accident.
The value of personal injury or suffering from a car accident is hard to define. Does it seem like enough to you? If...
