Am I still considered a felon in Tennessee?
I was born in Tennessee but moved to Michigan 25 years. I have 3 dui's in Michigan, over 9 years ago. In Michigan your 3rd dui is a felony, but not in Tennessee. Will Tennessee laws still consider me a felon with my 3 dui's from Michigan? I'm asking because I will be moving back to Tennessee.
Yes The felony in Michigan will be a felony in Tennessee.
I was charged with underage consumption while sober. What can I expect in court? Can I get this expunged from my record?
Yesterday was my first Friday of college. I am 18, and I had one beer at 9:00 PM in my dorm room before going out. Around 1:00 AM my friends and I, sober, decided to drive to Waffle House. As we left campus, we came to a police block testing for DUIs. There were two people sitting in the front seat, so naturally they stopped us and started performing tests on our driver (who was 22 and sober). The police asked if anyone was underage and had been drinking, and four of us were and admitted to it, though none of us had had anything to drink after 9:00 PM. I asked the officer if he would do a breathalyzer test, and he said if he did, I would still register for alcohol. They did not read us our Miranda rights and later told us everything was recorded. We were charged with underage consumption.
