Possible Penalties for DUI in Tennessee
The state of Tennessee gives harsh sentencing for DUI charges.
It is important that you understand the penalties that you might be facing, such as:

The severity of your penalties depend on your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) percentage at the time you were detained, as well as if you have had prior convictions. As a skilled Franklin DUI lawyer, I can help fight your charges.

Police Misinterpreting & Miscalculating Probable Cause
I am familiar with the many factors that can go wrong with a DUI arrest. Police can misinterpret your driving and miscalculate probable cause to stop you with questions about DUI in a variety of ways.
Common strategies police use are:
- A pre-existing medical condition
- Malfunctions in your car or truck
- Inclement weather conditions
- Hazardous, poorly maintained roads

Police and law enforcement crackdown hard on DUI, which is why even minor mistakes can result in lasting consequences.
