Asked in Traffic Tickets and Criminal Law for Tennessee

Q: For traffic violations & FTA Can you be violated for each individual charge(3 total)

I was sentenced 60 days and then $1800.00 in fines to be paid and probation with no end date , it ended when my fines were paid then I was no longer on probation , i completed all time in jail and then I did not pay my fines and I had a warrant for violation of probation then went to court and the judge hit me with total 3 warrants and let me sign a OR bonds due to being on bond from the night before . And I don't understand how I am being charged for each individual charge that I already went to jail for so I will no longer be a first time offender for violation I will be multiple time offender!! Is this correct , I feel that it's not ... Help please ???!?!

A: You may have three 11 mo/29 sentences or three 30 day sentences. Without looking at the dispositions on each Warrant, it is impossible to tell. You need an attorney to go to Court with you now. It appears you have already been convicted, that is apparently Diversion was not ordered.
