Attempted texting and driving stop leads to OUI, other charges

For some cases involving a driver placed under arrest for operating under the influence in Nashville, it starts with something totally unrelated to an investigation into an OUI offense. There could be a different alleged violation that sparked the traffic stop and the subsequent examination of the situation resulted in an arrest. For those who have been placed under arrest for drunk driving or drugged driving, it is important to understand the penalties that can accompany a conviction and that the case and its outcome can hinge on a variety of factors including whether it was a legal traffic stop.

Who can face domestic assault charges and how is it classified?

There is a natural stigma against those who are confronted with domestic assault charges in Tennessee. Because the penalties can go beyond having to deal with the legal system and evolve to involving the way a person is viewed, negatively affect their work situation and be a long-term problem, it is essential that anyone charged in a domestic incident understand how the charges can come about, how the penalties are classified and lodge a strong defense to rectify the situation as best as possible.

Care provider arrested for forgery and identity theft

Crimes involving identity theft, forgery and similar acts are usually perceived as having to do with large schemes in dark rooms and corporate entities. However, Nashville residents can also be charged with white collar crimes for committing the above-mentioned acts as well as other illegal activities in individual situations such as working for someone in their home. Whether the arrest is made as part of an investigation into a major enterprise with many participants or involves as few as two people, it is vital to craft a strong legal defense to avoid the harshest penalties.

Rob McGuire Discusses Tad Cummins Case on ABC News

ABC's 20/20 recently delved into the case of Tad Cummins, a former teacher in Tennessee who was recently arrested in remote Oregon after he was found with a 15-year-old student. Cummins was extradited to Tennessee, where he is now facing federal charges of transporting a minor across state lines for the purpose of sexual activity.

Monitoring requirements for an ignition interlock device

For Tennesseans who are arrested for drunk driving charges, one of the penalties that might be assessed is the installation of an ignition interlock device on the person's vehicle. This device is meant to prevent the person from driving by requiring that there be a test for blood alcohol content level before the vehicle will start. It is also necessary that the driver blow into the device at certain intervals to ensure that he or she was not drinking from the time of the previous test after the vehicle had started.
