Charged With DUI in Tennessee?

Being arrested for DUI is a frightening, embarrassing experience. Many people plead guilty because they believe it is the quickest way to end the ordeal. Pleading guilty may not be in your best interests, however. It is the same as being convicted of DUI and will affect your life for years.

You Could Lose Your Driver's License

Conviction for a first DUI offense may result in the following penalties:

  • An ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle
  • Fines
  • Driver's license revocation for a minimum of one year
  • Jail time
  • Perform community service

The penalties increase as the number of DUI offenses increases. A multiple offender who is charged with a fourth offense will be charged with felony DUI. The penalties for conviction include the loss of your driver's license for up to 10 years as well as a prison sentence.

If you refuse a Breathalyzer test when you are pulled over, you will face implied consent penalties. These may include the loss of your license for one year. We can represent you at administrative license hearings with the department of safety.

In addition, in 2012 DUI laws in Tennessee will have significant changes, and you will need an attorney who keeps up to date and will advise you of the changes.
