Can I get a Dui disposed without being present in court?
Got a dui, driving on suspended and refusal in 2011. I didn't show back up for trial. In 2013 I got indicted on charges. Now I am in federal prison in Alabama and need to get the dui charge disposed quickly to be able to go to the halfway house, that has already been processed. I am 6 months away from projected out date. Is it possible to get the dui case disposed without me having to go to court is it possible an attorney can show up in my absence?
No. You can get an attorney to get a transport order and ask the court/DA to run the sentence concurrently. This would...

Call a local attorney. Breath tests are always offered. Did he write you for a refusal? You need a lawyer in your area.

Duplicate question and answer. See next question.
Do I have to file charges against someone that is drunk and crashes into me for assault or does the state handle it?
The other driver was arrested for DUI and there were only minor injuries.
The state handles it so you won't have to do anything to ensure he's prosecuted.
I have recently moved from MI to TN. I have a restricted license in Michigan. Can TN contact MI if i try for a full license?
I had my license reinstated in 2009 to a restricted license allowing me to drive between 6am and 7pm and to and from work. I want to know if Tennessee will be able to see that I have a restricted license when I apply for a full license.
Yes and they most likely will. If you lie, and they find out later, they can pull your license completely. Is there...
DUI, open container, broken hand, no blood urinalysis or breathalyzer done. Refused it
Driving w/ open container, passed out at stop sign due to a number of things. Officer told my brother if he comes get me and my car it won't classifed as DUI. However another officer comes on scene gives me sobriety test, refused breathalyzer cuz I was already pissed that I'm getting arrested after my brother drove for no reason to come get me. There was no blood drawn nor urine obtained. There is just probable cause b/c of bottle on passenger floor. I had a caste on my right hand which meant I could not reach it. The dismissed the open container and implied consent. Still hit me with a DUI, suspended my L's then gave me all these fee's and gave me a probation alcohol class. I need advice if this is right and how can I fight it. What steps before my window of opportunity is gone.
I am not licensed in Tennessee, so out of respect for any experienced DUI attorney licensed there who responds, I would...
