Buchanan Law

Stuck in ditch while attempting to turn around. Someone was on their way to get me out when cops showed up and asked if i had been drinking. I admitted, and was so fourth arrested. I blew a .14 at the jail. The thing is that I was never a given a copy of my tn implied consent advisement. I was informed by another cop that i should have received one on release. So I looked into and even got into contact with the Trooper. He state that since I consented to the test that there was no form. W/o this form I feel there is no proof that i was informed that i could refuse the test.
Tennessee law requires that the officer advise you of the consequences of refusal to submit, but that advisement does...
A person I know just leased a building to serve alcohol by the drink and they both have a recent DUI on their record, Their first for the both of them. Can they still apply for a liquor license in TN?
Liquor licenses are usually under the control of the Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) type state agency.Please check on...
Arrested for DUI. I was weaving (dropped items in the car and weaved) and also failed portions of the field sobriety test (eye test and one balance test). I was extremely nervous. Never experineced anything like this before. No alcohol and no illegal drugs in my system but I do take 20 mg of paxil daily. I told the trooper but do not know if he recorded this information or added it to his report for testing to use against me. Will the blood test look for this prescription med when testing? I have read it is possible to have a DUI arrest enforced even when prescribed medication is taken in its prescribed dosage.
It's doubtful they would detect the Paxil unless they specifically looked for it. In my experience, Paxil does not...

You need to go by the law in the state that you received the current DWI charge in, which I assume is TN. If TN counts...
The only evidence that the prosecutor has against me is from a blood draw. There is no video, there were no field sobriety tests done, and there were no other types of testing done (such as breathalyzer). I've been offered a plea but have read that I should be sure the chain of custody is intact and the blood was properly stored, etc before agreeing to anything. Is this something that I can hire an attorney to determine before I accept the plea?
Yes and yes to both questions here. Basically, attorneys do not make limited appearances just to determine one issue in...
I wanted some clarification on Amelia's Law as it pertains to suspended prosecutions for DUIs. I understand that according to the Tennessee Code Annotated Section 40-15-105 DUIs are prohibited from suspended prosecution. But, with the introduction of Amelia's Law in Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 40-15-105(a)(2), are suspended prosecution offered to first-time offenders of DUIs if they agree to the transdermal patch? I suppose I'm confused by the statement "...the defendant use a transdermal monitoring device or other alternative monitoring device if, in the opinion of the district attorney general, the defendant's use of alcohol or drugs was a contributing factor in the defendant's unlawful conduct" when the section before it states that DUIs are prohibited.
Asker, this is the kind of question that you need to direct to an attorney during an in-person consultation. I assume...
