After a 1st offense DWI (Tennessee) is an interlock device required after the mandatory 1 year suspension?
A family member was charged and pleaded guilty to DWI charges (0.16) just over a year ago. They are now eligible for license reinstatement but are being told that in addition to obtaining an SR22 they also have to have an interlock device installed for 1 year as a condition of reinstatement. Does this sound correct? Followup question: This DWI was a wakeup call for the family member and after being released from the mandatory 48 jail sentence went to rehab, then a halfway house and just celebrated 1 year of sobriety. Is it possible to get the interlock requirement waived at this point?
Certainly sounds like this family member is on the right track. Consult a skilled attorney to discuss his or her...
How to get a DUI attorney in time for court: released (on OR bond) LAST (Sat) night and court is at 9am TOMORROW (Mon)?
Saturday AM, I slid off the road while going through a curve (front tire just barely tapped the edge of a curb but force was enough to pull me over and off road). It was still dark/raining & I ended up crashing into a telephone pole with such force that the pole broke. All airbags deployed & I did have seat belt on, but the force of impact was extremely disorienting/traumatic. When police arrived, before asking or checking to see if I was injured, they immediately began asking if I'd been drinking or taken any medications. I'm prescribed Tramadol but hadn't taken it in about 6 hours, & I'd drank a couple of those mini bottles of liquor 3-4 hours prior. It was 40 degrees outside, raining & very windy, and I had a thin tshirt and thin jeans on, plus I'd just impacted a telephone pole with enough force to split it almost in half. I didn't do well on the sobriety tests (IMO) because I was shaking uncontrollably due to being freezing, wet & in shock. They arrested me, took me to hospital for evaluation/blood draw, & released me on OR bond last nite ~7pm. Court is 9AM tomorrow. I need to talk to a lawyer about the arrest, and also: Dr at ER wrote Rx for meds but I did not receive them!

What is my best defense for me in order to get my car back and avoid forfeiture sale?
My car was seized on 11/20/14 because I was driving with a revoked license due to a DUI a few years ago, (I just haven't been able to afford the hefty fees to get my license reinstated.) I have a confiscation hearing set for 5/4/15. I recently finished serving my sentence for the driving on revoked charge that I acquired on 11/20/14. I cannot afford an attorney to represent me for the confiscation hearing on 5/4/14 so I will be representing myself. What is my best defense or strategy for me in order to get my car back and avoid forfeiture sale?
