My boyfriend got a DUI about 10 years ago in TN. It was his first & only. He was on probation, got arrested for child support in NC and when released, stayed in NC. He wants to take care of this matter to move on with his life, but is afraid of potential jail time. Is it likely he would serve time for this matter? Do you think there's a possibility this could be dismissed?

Will a previous reduction of DUI to reckless driving from 8 years ago be held against me for my current DUI charge in TN.
Previous DUI reduction was in Nashville, current DUI was in Tullahoma. I did not consent to the test for the first charge from 8 years ago and did not consent to the blood test this time either, however the officer obtained a warrant and blood was drawn. I performed the standard 3 roadside tests and the officer even said that obviously you are not slurring your words or falling down drunk but I believe you may be over the legal limit. The blood test will likely show that I was over the limit and there is a possibility that another substance may show up as well. My goal is just to retain my driving priviledges as i am pharma rep and drive for my job. If i obtain a very good DUI lawyer what are my chances of possibly being lucky enough to get another reckless plea. Any advice greatly appreci
Yes and no. The good thing about the prior reduction is that the current DUI cannot be classified as a DUI 2nd Offense,...
Was arrested for DUI in TN and refused chemical test although the officer obtained a warrant and I had to take one anyway. I feel that the results will show that I was over the legal limit and my also show another chemical in my system as well. I was told the blood test could take 4-6 months to come back and was wondering if it was possible with a good DUI attorney to plea down to a lesser charge such as reckless driving before the results of the test come back.
Yes. When I was a prosecutor, I would routinely plea cases before the blood was back. Will a DA do so with a prior...

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...
What are the current mandatory minimum sentences in the State of Tennessee for DUI second offense and DUI third offense?
I don't believe the following details are relevant to my question, but I am being asked to include details, so the following are the additional circumstances to the arrests: Refused test on second, charged with implied consent. Court ordered blood test on third. BAC came back at (.06). Also charged with marijuana possession both times and a toxicology report is pending from the court ordered blood test. Prescribed Adderall for conditions of severe permanent brain injuries which are the result of an accident as a California resident. Marijuana seems to provide relief that I that is not experienced from any other medication, but I do not believe that Tennessee recognizes any medical marijuana law. Thank you for allowing me to ask the question.
In Tennessee, 2nd offense DUI and 3rd offense DUI are class A misdemeanors punishable by up to 11 months 29 days in...
