Drunk driving leads to Knoxville crashes

A Tennessee man is facing charges as the results of events that unfolded recently on Henley Bridge and then in South Knoxville. The 60-year-old man has had charges filed against him for drunk driving and failing to drive within lane lines. He also faces two counts of failure to report a crash after two hit-and-run incidents allegedly caused by him. Neither wreck resulted in life-threatening injuries.

Drunk driving and vehicular assault charges filed after wrecks

A Tennessee woman is facing multiple vehicle charges after a series of events unfolded on Jan. 20 in West Nashville. Police reports allege that the driver, a 41-year-old resident of Ashland City, was involved in two wrecks on the same day. The woman was apprehended at the site of the second accident where it is said she was trying to flee the scene. Charges, including drunk driving and vehicular assault, have been filed.

Vehicular homicide charges filed against Tennessee driver

Being convicted of an alcohol related offense in Tennessee such as DUI or vehicular homicide means that the offender will face some of the most severe penalties in the country. A Bristol man could be sentenced to jail since, as of Jan. 1, probation is no longer an option if convicted of vehicular homicide in the the state. This new law means that is more important than ever to secure experienced criminal counsel who can aggressively defend  those facing these charges.

Why you should fight a first-time drunk driving offense

Tennessee has some of the harshest penalties for intoxicated driving in the country. Even a first-time offense can bring serious consequences, yet many people facing this type of criminal charge believe that it is not worthwhile to fight it. If you have been charged with drunk driving, it is important to appropriately confront these charges, even if it is your first DUI charge.

Penalties more severe for vehicular homicide related to DUI

The start of the new year signaled changes in the severity of penalties for Tennessee drivers who have been convicted of causing a drunk-driving death. A new law that took effect January 1 removes the option of probation for a person convicted of vehicular homicide related to intoxicated driving. This measure further enforces the already strong stance that the state takes against drunk driving.
