In Tennessee, a conviction for drunk driving can carry serious penalties, especially if a person has been convicted of a DUI in the past. If you are a repeat DUI offender, it is important to remember that your criminal record does not preclude you from a defense and other rights to which you are entitled. However, it is critical to take quick action to protect your future interests.
According to Tennessee law, first, second and third-time DUI offenders are not subjected to felony charges. However, a fourth DUI will bring felony charges and potentially serious repercussions. Whether it is your second DUI or you have been charged at least three times in the past, you will want to give serious thought to appropriate defense strategies.
The options available to an individual facing drunk driving charges will differ from person to person. While it is not always possible to have charges dismissed, it is still possible for a person to pursue the most beneficial outcome according to the details of an individual case. The penalties are severe for these type of DUI cases when a conviction is actually obtained, but you do not have to face these charges alone.
