Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) is among the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in Tennessee, particularly for repeat offenders. Even first-time offenders are subject to jail time and a one-year license suspension.
It is illegal to drive in Tennessee with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or greater. If your BAC was above the legal limit and the prosecution can show the test was accurate and the stop was lawful, you can be convicted of drunk driving.
Drunk driving, also commonly referred to as driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious charge that requires equally serious and aggressive legal representation. The law firm of Rogers, Duncan & North understands the nuances of Tennessee DUI law, as well as the circumstances involved in many DUI arrests that infringe on drivers' rights.
If you have a commercial driver's license (CDL) and drive for a living, you are held to a higher standard. Drivers with a CDL commit DUI in Tennessee when their blood alcohol content is .04 percent or higher. A DUI conviction can end your career.
