Does an online DUI school satisfy the county's requirements?
I received a DUI in Chattanooga but I live out of state. A condition of my plea bargain was to attend DUI school, so I would like to know if the county court accepts completion of an online DUI course. I've found several that offer a 12hr class, which I believe satisfies the state requirement. If so, what are the more reputable online services?

How likely is greater than minimum sentencing? McMinn Co, TN was just DUI and Catoosa Co, GA was just open container and DUI.
I have been arrested for DUI twice in the last few months. Once in Georgia and once in Tennessee. I have no money or job due to other circumstances and am planning on just pleading guilty so in can do my time and then rebuild my life. Looking at the DUI sentencing laws, it looks like I will get 45 days to 11 months in Tennessee if they get the second conviction and Georgia says 3 days minimum with a chance of 90-365 days. My Tennessee court date is before. Georgia's so Georgia should get the second.
It is likely one court or the other or both would impose a sentence above the minimum. You should plea not guilty and...

Foreigner who has problems with border-crossing for dismissed DUI - immigration
I got charged with a DUI last year and had my fingerprints taken. The case was dismissed in court and expunged accordingly. When crossing the border stateside my fingerprints showed up in the system on the live scan and I was taken to secondary screening. After explaining the situation and presenting all documents I was allowed in. The officer advised me however that this procedure will take place every time I will cross the border. It will not ban me from being permitted but it is still really discomforting especially on business trips. My question is if there is any way to have the fingerprints deleted in the system and if so, what procedure I would need to follow. Thank you very much in advance.
Depends what state you were arrested in. Some states like Washington will allow you to seal the records three years...
