It's been over 5 years since. I have no other court fees to pay and no other charges. The DA in Wilson County, Tn told me the Implied Consent charge couldn't be dismissed. After she done rigorous research on the topic, which took 3 days, she couldn't find the answer of why it... Read more »
Taken to an ambulance service where 2 EMTs both stuck me one time each, and were both unsuccessful with obtaining my blood. Will this be used against me somehow as possibly violation of the Implied Consent law? I don’t see how it could be considering I did not refuse, and voluntarily agreed to test
The DA will probably claim you refused the Test, which you should have. But you can contest that administrative suspension of your TNDL, and might be successful. Were you even charged with Implied Consent? Hire a competent attorney for a thorough Preliminary Examination now.
Got pulled over for speeding..state trooper said i was on meth..after me telling him I took a 5 hour energy drink.. literally minutes before getting pulled over..he asked if I would let them draw blood where I stated I was deathly scared of needles..and then I offered to take a urine test and he...

You were found in violation of Implied Consent. Apparently you did not try to get a restricted TNDL, so you have to now for the year to make DOS happy. Refusal of the test is a violation. However it is much better than getting convicted of DUI, so you were correct in refusing.
Most DUI convictions do not cause a firearm disability. Just because you cannot pass the instant check does not mean you cannot arm yourself and purchase from an individual. Hire a competent attorney that knows firearms to look at your convictions and so advise.
Neighbor claims they saw me drive. The police did not see me , video me ,or have any proof . They got me to give a drunken admission. Is this legal on my private property. Do I have any leg to stand on?
Apparently you have already confessed to driving. So a strong DUI charge has been made. A good lawyer may find other problems though, which is his job. Prepare for a thorough Preliminary Hearing, and stay out of trouble.
As far as dui school, you ask them for the certificate. For Court costs and fines, you get a receipt from the clerk or a statement. Community Service also gives you a certificate or statement. You will need to approach each outfit yourself for help. Sometimes DOS can be very picky about what...Read more »
Got my license back over 4 years ago. Non restricted valid class d license. State of Tn is now saying I need to insatall an interlock for 6 months. Why wasn’t this needed to get my unrestricted license in the 1st place 4 years ago.
Probably Costs and Fines have to be paid, not Restitution, prior to eligibility for
Reinstatement. Numerous Sentencing requirements must usually be satisfied. You will have to examine your Judgment on the Warrant or Conviction to find specific requirements, and then meet them. Also...Read more »
Husband will probably not be charged with VOP as the Court and/or Probation Officer will usually not find out about another State's Misdemeanor charges. It is possible however, and if it happens of course his lawyer can argue it happened prior to the Probation Sentence running. Inform his...Read more »
Hire a competent attorney now. TN has always held if you are capable of driving, whether you physically are or not, then DUI can be charged. If you had any intoxicants in your system, then what you did was a crime. But the State still has to prove it and without a chemical test, it will be a...Read more »
To my knowledge a DUI Conviction does not affect such employment. If you have some sort of License, and there is a complaint, you might have to deal with that Regulatory Agency.. Tennessee is a Terminate At Will State anyway.
It is a Class E Felony and at least 150 days in jail, with a $ 3K Fine. Hire a competent attorney. You may not have much to lose by trying it. Reducing it to a non felony 3rd offense might be the best solution.
The mandatory minimum is 45 days in jail. You did not state the Sentence, but sometimes a lengthier Sentence can include in house rehabilitation, and possibly other things. Going home is not an option however. He should have thought about the Sentence when the Judge was considering it.
