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...
DUI attorney
I got stopped at the hospital where I lived in May, went into the hospital to see about a severely abcessed tooth. It was early morning and I had been drinking. I drove over 14 miles to the hospital when a cop at the hospital followed me inside and engaged me. He then asked me to take the normal DUI tests which I did and failed. I never got seen at the hospital. I was taken to jail and sent to a cell. I was then brought to an adjacent cell where I stupidly gave blood. The was on Mothers day. The next day I was bailed out and went home. This case has yet to be determined. Here is the kicker on which I think I can beat it on. I was not arraigned for 3 weeks from my arrest date because the judge had hip surgery. From my understanding I still have to be arraigned in a timely manner (48-72 hour

I got charged with dui in tennessee but I passed the breathalyzer can I appeal
On the evening in question I was pulled over for no seatbelt. I had open containers in the backseat. I was taken to jail, where I passed a breathalyzer with a .06 BAC. A marijuana cigarette paper, was found in my vehicle. No other drugs or paraphernalia was found. I was charged with a DWI for driving under the influence of marijuana. I was never drug tested, and no blood was taken. I was found guilty because I did not come to court while I was incarcerated in another county.
It depends on when and how your case was tried. Typically, a bench warrant for failing to appear would be issued for...
