    Is there ever a time when the second DUI would be considered the first due to the amount of time between the two? Is it ever possible to have the second one reduced if no harm or property damage resulted? Thank You

    i recently ran off the road and left my vehicle because of a probation warrent . the law however got to my vehicle befor i could have it towed. i live in another county and was at home when the cops showed up and got me out of bed . this was 2 to 3 hours after the fact and i had several drinks for the nerves after i got home . when i arrived at the jail they charged me with leaving the scene and dui no other vehicle was involved other than the one that helped run me off the road and kept going . do i have a good case to plead not guilty to dui being as they never saw me driving drunk and the fact that it was hours later

    The answer to both questions is yes. Because of the dramatic increase in the sentence (particularly jail time and loss of license) between a first and second offense DUI highlights the importance of hiring an attorney to represent your interests in your case.

    You have presented several legal issues in your comment. Without more information, I am unable to provide any advice or specific answers. I urge you, however, to contact a criminal defense attorney in your area for legal advice.

    I have a 1st offense misdemeanor DUI. Now I have a bright red label on my id that proclaims “DUI Offender”. Does that ever get removed? I can’t get a decent job with this on my id.

    We suggest you contact your lawyer. He or she will have copies of all the relevant paperwork and court documents. This problem is exactly why it is so important to hire a lawyer who will communicate all of the case details to the client. We wish you the best of luck.

    Please feel free to call our office at 865-249-7200. One of the services we provide is to help our client navigate the often complicated Tennessee Department of Safety license reinstatement process. We’d be happy to speak with you about the issues you are experiencing.
