3rd DUI, 1st DUI was 12 years ago and the 2nd was 8 years ago...
My name is Jessica. My fiancé was arrested about 4 months ago for his 3rd DUI. He also got charged with the implied consent law also from refusing to do the blood alcohol test which I guess somehow they still obtained his blood while in booking, not sure how that goes new to this...So I bonded him out... Anyway his first DUI was 12 years ago he did the 48 hours, then 8 years ago he had his second DUI which he also only did the 48 hours that time as well rather than the normal 2nd offense 45 days to serve (from what I read)... So he goes to court for his 2nd appearance next week and I'm nervous, whereas he is the person who works and pays all the bills, I was in school but I went ahead and withdrew last week and am looking for work trying to prepare, but as bad as it sounds financially I can't afford for him to go to jail... For a lengthy period of time especially... We have 3 kids and only childcare is mon-fri daytime hours so that's scary... Do you think the lawyer could see about the DA or judge considering at least less jail time considering its been longer lenghths of time since his 1st&2nd DUI's ?? He will be going to court in Davidson county..
There are many many ways a good DUI lawyer can help him. Do not just settle for less. Call and interview several...

If I move to Tenn which is not a part of the Interstate Compact do I still have to fulfill my interlock time/counseling from FL?
I got a DUI in FL in 2010 and blew a 0.18 BAC. I am required to have an interlock on my vehicle and counseling. I deployed to Afghanistan while on probation and had a bench warrant put out for my arrest. It took me awhile to get that cleared up and get back on my feet after deploying. I was off and on having an interlock and in my required alcohol counseling due to employment and vehicle issues. in the past 2 years of not having an interlock or driving due to not having a vehicle I have straightened out my life and have a good job and money to get my license back. I am trying to get a job contracting overseas and need to have a full driver license to do so.
I would have to take a closer look at it. I am not sure but it sounds like an issue to be addressed in Florida first....
In 2010, I was cited a DUI, but was convicted of Reckless Driving. Am I eligible for expungement?
I would like to expunge a misdemeanor from my record. In 2010, I was cited a DUI, but was convicted of Reckless Driving. Am I eligible for expungement in Tennessee? I know DUI is not eligible, but since it was reduced to Reckless Driving, can I have it taken off my record?
Yes. You can petition the court to expunge the reckless drubbing charge off your record. You have to wait five years...
Can I get the restricted license in Tennessee or will I have to go back to Texas and get the license
I am from Texas and now I live in Nashville Tn. My license was suspended in Texas, they have given me the ok to get an occupational license, which in Tennessee it's called a restricted license, being that this started in Texas, am I able to just get a restricted license in Tennessee, or am I required to travel back to Texas and get the license?
You'll have to get the hold off your texas license before you'll likely be able to apply for another license out of...
How likely is it to get a restricted license with a DUI conviction (instead of complete suspension)?
In September, a good friend of mine was pulled over for a broken tag light and then charged with a DUI. We have yet to get the BAC but I know he had a fair amount of alcohol in his system. He was supposed to start classes again at the community college in a couple weeks (he's been taking time off) but his court date is in late Februrary. I know they'll probably take away his license but how possible is it that the judge could suspend his license so he can still get to school and work?
In Tennessee, you can get a restricted license that will allow you to drive if you have an ignition interlock device...
