What are the increasing penalties for DUI convictions?

You know that a first-offense DUI is not treated the same as a fourth-offense in Tennessee, but do you know exactly how the potential penalties increase? If you're facing charges at any level, this is critical information. You deserve a fair trial and a fair sentence, if convicted, so knowing exactly what the law states helps you know how to proceed.

Getting your driver's license back in Tennessee

If you have had your license suspended, you will know the frustrations of not being able to drive for an extended period of time. It is likely that it affected your job and your ability to generate income. Therefore, of course, you will be eager to take the right steps to get your license back as soon as you can. It is important that you know and obey the law in regard to this so that you do not waste any time.

Impaired driving report sparks MADD criticism

Last week we featured a blog entry seeking to answer the question, can you be tested for marijuana during a DUI stop?

Every state, including Tennessee, has blood alcohol content limits beyond which impairment is legally presumed. The same can't be said, however, for marijuana. The science isn't well established.
