You may be frustrated and you may think you can’t afford an attorney. You may believe that the case against you is impossible to beat. You may think you are guilty and that you should therefore plead guilty. This is not true. Contrary to what you may believe, DUI charges are very defendable. Pleading guilty involves the waiver of a number of important rights and carries lasting, in some cases permanent, consequences.

  • A DUI conviction cannot be expunged in Tennessee.
  • A DUI conviction carries a mandatory jail sentence.
  • A DUI conviction results in the loss of your driver’s license.
  • A restricted license that you get SR-22 High Risk (and high cost) insurance.
  • A restricted license will require either geographic restrictions on where and when you can drive your car, an ignition interlock device (breathalyzer for your car which you have to pay for), or both.

Talk to a skilled DUI defense attorney before taking any kind of a plea. Be sure you know and understand your rights. Resist the temptation to pay an attorney several hundred dollars to take you to the courthouse and plead you guilty to DUI.

Remember, you are

  1. Innocent until Proven Guilty, and
  2. The Government Carries the Burden of Proving all Elements of your Charges Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

A skilled DUI defense attorney will be able to help you in the following ways:

  • Explaining your Charges
  • Investigating your Case
  • Identifying any Defenses
  • Representing you in Court
  • Attacking the Government’s Evidence
  • Making sure the Government carries its Burden of Proof
  • Negotiating a Plea Arrangement

Remember, if you plead guilty to DUI in Tennessee, you WILL:  

  • Lose your license, and
  • Spend a minimum of 48 hours in jail
