DUI transfer from state to state
i was arrested for a dui in TN, and have a DUI in CT from abotu 4 years ago i understand that it is on my driving record, but can this new one if convicted be a second offense?
Depending on TN law which may be different,it would generally be considered a second offense
Can I get this Dui dismissed?
On a Friday night I allowed a friend to drive me home who told me he had a valid driver license. I had been drinking and turned over my keys to him. Well he went got my car and picked me up and on the way home a state trooper pulled us over. Next thing I know they asked me to step out of my car, put me in hand cuffs and said I was being arrested for consenting to allow a person to drive my car who has suspended license and they gave him a 2nd offense dui. I didn't know his license was suspended and I thought that I was doing the right thing by not driving with drinking. The police officers charged me with DUI no BREATHLYZER nor Blood test was given to me. No test was given to me. I wanted to know if I can get this dismissed considering I thought I was doing the right thing and not drinking and driving. He lied to me saying he had license and sober.... Can I get this DUI dismissed?
You are unlikely to get it dismissed if you represent yourself. Also, if you are your own lawyer the things you say to...
3rd DUI, 1st DUI was 12 years ago and the 2nd was 8 years ago...
My name is Jessica. My fiancé was arrested about 4 months ago for his 3rd DUI. He also got charged with the implied consent law also from refusing to do the blood alcohol test which I guess somehow they still obtained his blood while in booking, not sure how that goes new to this...So I bonded him out... Anyway his first DUI was 12 years ago he did the 48 hours, then 8 years ago he had his second DUI which he also only did the 48 hours that time as well rather than the normal 2nd offense 45 days to serve (from what I read)... So he goes to court for his 2nd appearance next week and I'm nervous, whereas he is the person who works and pays all the bills, I was in school but I went ahead and withdrew last week and am looking for work trying to prepare, but as bad as it sounds financially I can't afford for him to go to jail... For a lengthy period of time especially... We have 3 kids and only childcare is mon-fri daytime hours so that's scary... Do you think the lawyer could see about the DA or judge considering at least less jail time considering its been longer lenghths of time since his 1st&2nd DUI's ?? He will be going to court in Davidson county..
There are many many ways a good DUI lawyer can help him. Do not just settle for less. Call and interview several...
Can I somehow be able to use pretrial diversion since DUI and DWI are mostly interchangeable words?
I was recently arrested for DUI in Tennessee, and I am 18. This is my first offense, and was going to use Pretrial Diversion since this is my first offense ever, but TN law states pretrial diversion can not be offered for DUIs, but can for DWIs. I did let them take my blood, but was never breathalyzed, so I don't know what my BAC was at the time. My arraignment is tomorrow.
No - they are not interchangeable. In Tennessee, there is no DWI for adults. DWI applies to minors only. And don't...
What if I'm 6 months behind on court fees and I haven't been able to complete my community service in time?
I plead guilty to a dui case back on December, and they gave me three days of community service, dui school, and monthly payments. Shortly after I lost my job, my house due to no income, and my phone, providing no contact, and I haven't been able to make any kinds of payments, norBcontact anyone. I have a clean record other than this. I just recently got a job, under stuff circumstances it's too late for my deadline. I can not afford to go back to jail. Do you think the judge would be reasonable and give me a few more months? I've been working for three weeks and have enough to pay forward and catch up a couple months. I just can not afford to be without income again, which is what jail would do. Help!!!!
First, file a motion to waive court costs based upon indigence (the clerk's office should have a form). Second, get...

Do I have a chance of getting the charge reduced. If not, can I serve the 45 days on weekends or some other way for work/college
Hi. I just received my 2nd dui charge in Tennessee. My last one was 8 years ago. It's a physical control issue. An officer did a wellness check while i was sleeping it off in my truck and had my keys on me. My BAC was .14.
It is certainly possible to get the charge reduced. Although, recent case law has gotten much more favorable toward...
