Will a DUI conviction in TN prevent me from purchasing a firearm for any length of time?
I was charged with DUI 1st in TN almost 3 months ago but I have not been convicted yet. My BAC results have not come back yet and I am returning to court in a week.

Can I be found guilty of DUI if I was sitting sideways facing out driver side window with no keys in ignition?
Officer was dispatched to a residential location, I was sitting sideways in driver seat, there were keys in the vehicle but not the keys to that vehicle.

I was told i could not drive for 365 days but they didn't suspend my licenses and it's still valid. How does this work.
I had some legal troubles when i was 15, now 17 i finally went to court. Part of my plea deal was not to drive for 365 days, but they made a mistake not knowing i now am a valid licensed driver, and the judge says he was not suspending it. How would this work in regards to the state of Georgia knowing i have that ruling if i was to drive. Im just confused on it still being valid, and if my points will me reported to the DMV and if that could suspend it?
It's not about the state knowing.. It's about the judge ordering you not to drive. IF you get caught, you'll be in...
