Man arrested on numerous weapons and drug charges

An arrest for allegations related to drugs in Tennessee can come in many different forms and the circumstances will determine how severe the charges are. People who have been arrested before must be vigilant to this reality. Some allegations carry with them serious consequences. Others are lower level and allow the possibility for the person to reduce charges. No matter what kind of drug charges are alleged, everyone who was placed under arrest for drugs must make sure to lodge a defense from the beginning.

What are the penalties for underage DUI in Tennessee?

With the end of school for the summer in Tennessee, more and more young people will be out and about on the roadways. For some, this might mean having an alcoholic drink and choosing to get behind the wheel. It might simply involve possessing alcohol. The circumstances of this type of situation can vary. But what must be understood with possessing alcohol, underage drunk driving or underage DUI is the negative influence it can have on a juvenile's future. When there is an arrest, minors can face many penalties based on the circumstances. Knowing these penalties can help with a defense.

Law enforcement officer faces DUI charge after crashing cruiser

In Tennessee, the general way in which drunk driving charges are lodged is if a law enforcement officer stops a vehicle and investigates a driver whom he or she believes was driving while intoxicated. From there, the driver will be spoken to, given tests to determine the amount of alcohol in the blood, or BAC level, and, if necessary, the arrest will be made. However, it is important to remember that everyone is subject to the laws against driving under the influence and there are times when a person who is supposed to be enforcing the law ends up being arrested and charged with being a drunk driver.

Man arrested for operating under the influence on his boat

Drunk driving charges in Nashville and throughout Tennessee are often viewed as related to driving a car, but they can involve other vehicles as well. Operating a boat under the influence can also lead to charges and those who are confronted by them must be aware of their consequences and lodge a defense. Frequently, drunk driving charges of any vehicle will lead to other offenses unrelated to the initial investigation. This makes it even more essential to have legal assistance from someone experienced in multiple aspects of the law.

Are the penalties for a second DUI twice as severe?

Facing any type of criminal charge is a daunting and overwhelming prospect, especially when charged with the same crime for the second time. This is particularly true for a drunk driving offense in Tennessee. The state laws take a strong stance against repeat drunk driving offenders, and you would be wise to take quick action to defend yourself against potential penalties. 

Legal help is essential in defense of white collar crime charges

For those in Tennessee who are arrested on white collar crime charges, it is important to understand that the penalties can be as severe or worse than criminal acts that are more frequently discussed and referenced in the news like drug involvement and violence. Acts that are included in this category are internet crime, fraud, identity theft, embezzling and other acts that are not violent, but are substantially damaging to the victim and can result in large fines, jail time and more for the alleged perpetrator. A strong defense is vital to effectively confront these charges.
