How does the 10 day hold if not bonded out policy work?
My son was charged with simple possession on 2/7; then DUI (not alcohol but pot) on 2/14--I bonded him out for that one; then 2nd DUI (again smoking pot) and another simple possession on 3/8. I did not bond him out for this one. He has not been to any hearings yet for any of them since it has all happened in about a month. Since I did not bond him out for the 2nd DUI how does the 10 hold apply and one DUI was in Humphries County and the 2nd DUI was in Dickson County. He has no money so he will need to ask for public defender--how does that work? If first court date for the 1st DUI is set for 3/19 which is close to the 10 day mark but it is in Humphries County and he is in jail in Dickson County. Unfortunately, I do not have the money for an attorney but am confused how it works.
Different jurisdictions in Tennessee interpret and implement the "10 Day Rule" differently. The rule is designed to...
How do I get probation reinstated?
My boyfriend was on probation for driving on a suspended revoked drivers licenses. Its his 5 offence. We tried to get him back and forth to his po. But the car broke down and due to the economy we both lost our jobs. The po office is 15 miles away or better a little more than walking distance. How could we get his probation reinstated?? And would it do any good if we paid off probation fee's and court cost in advance?
Assuming your boyfriend was represented by an attorney on his underlying charge, speaking to that attorney is a good...
Is it legal to sell a vehicle to someone whose DL is under suspension for DUI? The vehicle cannot be insured.
I financed a vehicle and had my full coverage insurance dropped because my co-signer, whose name was applied as co-owner, has a suspended DL for DUI. I had no idea that the co-signer's name would be applied in this way when I purchased the vehicle. Furthermore, had I known that the co-signer was not insurable, I would not have purchased the vehicle in the first place. Since I cannot insure this vehicle, the loan will go into default and the vehicle will be repossessed. I cannot re-finance the vehicle myself, so I cannot have the co-signer's name removed. Do I have any recourse other than biting the bullet on this one?
If you can sell the car for more than owe you are in the clear.

I got stopped at the hospital where I lived in May, went into the hospital to see about a severely abcessed tooth. It was early morning and I had been drinking. I drove over 14 miles to the hospital when a cop at the hospital followed me inside and engaged me. He then asked me to take the normal DUI tests which I did and failed. I never got seen at the hospital. I was taken to jail and sent to a cell. I was then brought to an adjacent cell where I stupidly gave blood. The was on Mothers day. The next day I was bailed out and went home. This case has yet to be determined. Here is the kicker on which I think I can beat it on. I was not arraigned for 3 weeks from my arrest date because the judge had hip surgery. From my understanding I still have to be arraigned in a timely manner (48-72 hour
Your best course of action contact a local attorney, either by email or phone, who will protect you and your rights....
I got charged with dui in tennessee but I passed the breathalyzer can I appeal
On the evening in question I was pulled over for no seatbelt. I had open containers in the backseat. I was taken to jail, where I passed a breathalyzer with a .06 BAC. A marijuana cigarette paper, was found in my vehicle. No other drugs or paraphernalia was found. I was charged with a DWI for driving under the influence of marijuana. I was never drug tested, and no blood was taken. I was found guilty because I did not come to court while I was incarcerated in another county.
It depends on when and how your case was tried. Typically, a bench warrant for failing to appear would be issued for...
