What are the penalties for driving without a license in Tennessee?
I am a KY resident- was in an accident on a TN highway/interstate. Wrecked truck. Trooper came and got our information. I was driving the vehicle but he cited my wife for driving on a suspended license. She is on probation for a DUI. I have NO license, have never been issued one and have never tried to get one. I have a completely clean record besides an infraction in california that is 7 years old. The truck was registered in my wife's name. I've went over the statue involving driving on a suspended, revoked or cancelled license(55-50-504) but have found no information about having no license at all. I also read (55-50-301) stating a license is required but found no penalty. What are the potential penalties for both of us?
I am not licensed in TN or KY, but the statue that applies in CA in such a situation is "driving without a valid...
Can a lawyer get me out of or get my charges reduced on a dui for weed?
I was pulled over recently for no seat belt and got a DUI for weed. I had the substance and paraphernalia in my possession. He said I was hesitating so that's why he suspected I was high. He wrote on the citation he smelled it coming from the car. I hadn't smoked it in the car but I had smoked about an hour prior to driving. I got 4 citations. DUI, Paraphernalia, Posession of shedule VI (weed), and no seat belt. I agreed to have blood drawn. It was a state trooper that pulled me over, and he said that it would be pointless for me to get a lawyer. Would getting a lawyer help me out some how?
Get a lawyer unless you want to just eat a DUI without any challenge. Never take legal advice from a cop.
I got busted March 15, 2013 for underage drinking and violation of curfew. Will I loose my DL?
I spent the night at a friends house and we were drinking and we went walking at 1:30a.m. We got stopped by Greenbrier PD. The officers never read us our Miranda Rights. Whenever you get arrested the Police Officers have to read you your rights correct? Will this be on my permanent record? How much are the fines for both charges? And this being my first offense would they drop the charges? When the Officers gave us a breathalizer at the police station it read 0.0 would they drop the charges since I passed it?
You may loose your licenses. How old are you? I assume your under 18 since the curfew violation. As such, had to say...

7 years from date of conviction or 7 years from date I completed probation??
On February 23rd, 2009, I received my final conviction for a gross misdemeanor theft charge. On the same date, I started my 2 year probation sentence, which I completed on February 23rd, 2011. I've been trying to a job at a company I would like to work at. On the employment application, it ask "have you ever been convicted of a crime in the past 7 years." My question is, do I count 7 years from conviction or do I count 7 years from when I completed probation?
It is always good to be honest in an employment application. Now, if it asks if you have been "convicted" in the past 7...
