7 years from date of conviction or 7 years from date I completed probation??
On February 23rd, 2009, I received my final conviction for a gross misdemeanor theft charge. On the same date, I started my 2 year probation sentence, which I completed on February 23rd, 2011.

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.

It is likely one court or the other or both would impose a sentence above the minimum. You should plea not guilty and...
