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. If I am convicted I assume I will be put on some sort of probation. If convicted and placed on probation will I be prohibited from purchasing a firearm for the duration of probation? I have a lawyer representing me, is there any chance of getting the charges reduced and avoiding probation altogether?
You should ask you lawyer about the chance of getting the charges reduced. As far as the firearm is concerned, it is my...
Can my son get a DWI charge dropped due to the fact that he wasn't even in a vehicle when they charged him?
My son was out celebrating valentines day with his wife, they had an alternation, he left and went to a bar, he was there less than 5 mins, the police pulled him out of the bar and charged him with DWI. They asked him if he drove to the bar. He said "Yes." Then they arrested him.
The state must prove he was intoxicated while he was operating the vehicle. If they can prove that, it doesn't matter...
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?

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...

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