Could expect to get? The original charge was a DUI 1st offense probation violation and had criminal impersonation as the most recent offense.

My son got a dui in my truck. He asked if I could pick it up. It was walking distance for me. It was denied. It cost me 250 to get out. Just to towe a few miles. What are the laws
answered on Mar 8, 2023
No law requires the LEO to accommodate the driver offender. If you talk the LEO in letting someone pick up car, fine, but it is not required.

If you were arrested for DUI it is imperative that you hire a DUI lawyer. Officers routinely write "strong odor of alcohol, slurred speech, unsteady on feet, red watery and bloodshot eyes" in nearly every arrest warrant for DUI. The only recourse is to question him on the witness stand in... Read more »
I was arrested 12/3/21 for dui. Since my 1st court date my case has been postponed because the arresting officer has been away on military leave. I'm getting ready to go back to court soon. When I go back it will have been over a year. Is it possible to ask to have the case dismissed?
answered on Dec 13, 2022
The SOL may have been met by the Arrest Warrant. However, you should have your lawyer review the arrest warrant to make sure each element of the offense is supported by factual details. If an element of DUI is not supported factually within the arrest warrant then your lawyer can move for the court... Read more »
DUI was 3 yrs ago. No accident or any damage. I was very compliant. Was given absolute minimum punishment including unsupervised probation from day one. In the states database I am eligible to get my license. But I don’t have a vehicle in my name to put the interlock device on so TN will not even... Read more »

Interlock is only for a restricted license. There must be some part of the
Sentence you did not comply with. Hire an attorney to deal with Department of
Safety. Insurance requirement will be tough since it must apply to any vehicle drove.
You may have to demand a DOS Hearing.

Charges can be filed against you at any point within the statute of limitations. However, due to the highly-science-dependent nature of DUI prosecution, if you were not administered field sobriety tests at the scene, nor were you administered blood draws, which were sent to TBI, it is unlikely the...

The first thing you need to do is let your parents know, and you (you and your parents) need to go speak to a lawyer. Schools are not allowed to question students without someone "friendly" to the student, and no, the school administrators and teachers are usually friendly to the school... Read more »
My fiance has been on probation for at least 10 years. He is on the sex offenders list. Got arrested twice for public intoxication. The dates are 9/26/22 &10/3/22
answered on Oct 27, 2022
Quite often it depends on the nature of the violation, his performance on probation overall and the jurisdiction he is in. Aside from the arrests for public intoxication, if his performance on probation has been good otherwise, regarding completing classes, paying fees, maintaining contact with... Read more »
My dad's car was taken for driving on revoked from a 2nd DUI he got in 2007, they never charged him & the police drove off in his car, is that legal??
answered on Sep 29, 2022
If no charge was made by the LEO's, and no Forfeiture Warrant was issued, then it is an unlawful taking. But did Dad own the vehicle? I suspect more occurred here than what facts are stated. Driving on Revoked TNDL may be a charge in the making, which can take 1 year to initiate. The owner... Read more »
All 3 took place in TN. The District attorney offered minimum sentence on DUI 3. MY lawyer didn't agree and post poned my court date.
answered on Sep 1, 2022
Almost certainly a #3rd Offense. Talk to your lawyer that represents you. You might get 30 to 60 days less incarceration with a pled 2nd and more than the minimum. Or you might try it and take a chance on serving 6 months or more. With a 2nd, it is a 2 year TNDL revocation.
Also got simple possession. I'm 52 and take care of my disabled brother what should I do
answered on Aug 19, 2022
Hire local counsel to defend the charge. An attorney can review the facts and circumstances and determine whether you have a good defense, as well as engage the necessary experts regarding the medical condition.
It's a 5 speed truck and it rolled into the road. It wasn't started and was in the off position. They charged me with DUI and impeding traffic. Is this consistent with the law? I was curious because of the good Samaritan law
answered on Aug 4, 2022
TN has always prosecuted anyone for DUI that had the capability of driving or the LEO suspected he had been driving earlier.
answered on Jul 27, 2022
If you are finished with your 11mo/29 day Sentence, then file a Motion to end supervised probation and the interlock requirement for your TNDL. Take that Order to the people who monitor your blowing device so they will remove it. Then you have to make Dept of Safety happy to get your license... Read more »

arrested on a sunday and on monday their bond and second court date was announced. bond is $8500
answered on Jul 21, 2022
Those are both A Misdemeanors, 11 mo 29 days each. The probable jail time of 48 hrs and a year probation are not the real problems. It is loosing your TNDL and having either conviction on your record. Hire a competent attorney and prepare for a Preliminary Hearing.
I had a blown tire. Was in a parking lot after drinks with friends. Called a lyft while waiting for said lyft in my car police came and arrested me. The car was not running and had a literal blown out tire so was not drivable at all.

The State apparently believes that you drove the car earlier prior to it being inoperable. That is sufficient facts for the charge of DUI.

Not sure of your question, but you have stated alot of facts on a public forum. If charged with DUI, that is your main concern. Hire a competent attorney to prepare for a Preliminary Hearing. Apparently your actions or statements caused the LEO's to think you had the capability of... Read more »
