Is it possible to plea down a DUI in TN before the results of a blood test come back.
Was arrested for DUI in TN and refused chemical test although the officer obtained a warrant and I had to take one anyway. I feel that the results will show that I was over the legal limit and my also show another chemical in my system as well. I was told the blood test could take 4-6 months to come back and was wondering if it was possible with a good DUI attorney to plea down to a lesser charge such as reckless driving before the results of the test come back.
Yes. When I was a prosecutor, I would routinely plea cases before the blood was back. Will a DA do so with a prior...
In Tennessee, can you face jail time for a 2nd implied consent? Will I have to install an interlocking device?
Was arrested for DUI/Implied consent 8 years ago and had the DUI reduced to reckless driving and lost my license for a year for the implied consent. Was unfortunately arrested again this weekend for DUI and I did not consent to the chemical test again althought the officer did obtain a warrant and made me take a blood test. I will be hiring the best DUI attorney I can find but I am a medical sales rep and I am terrified that I will lose my job if they find out. I am ok with driving on a restricted license but I frequently have upper management and other clients ride along with me so unfortunately the interlocking device would be the nail in the coffin for my employment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
While a second offense for implied consent is a criminal matter, you are likely not looking at any jail time on the...
2nd DUI Offense; Different State but Same CO Driver's License
I was convicted of DWAI in the state of Colorado in early 2010. I just moved to central Tennessee and received a DUI. Because I've only been in TN for 2 months, I was still carrying my CO driver's license. Will my DWAI from CO be recognized in TN, and if so, will I face jail time?
If Tennessee discovers your Colorado DWAI, it may be used as an enhancement. I would recommend obtaining a TN driver's...

In Williamson county your failure to report for your jail time will most likely result in two additional charges a...
I was arrested for speeding and dui after field test. I took blood test. When released I was NOT given a citation or ticket.
I was instructed I was pulled over for just speeding. Field test went well. I have a fused spine and one leg longer than other.
Here in Georgia, even if you aren't issued a citation, an officer can still take out a warrant to prosecute.
I was arrested for dui i need to know if i can sue for false arrest
after two years they threw it out
Can you sue? of course. Can you win? It will depend on the facts. Getting the criminal case thrown out does not mean...
