Tennessee raises penalties in DUI cases

People accused of drunk driving in Tennessee may face more severe penalties in case of a conviction, especially if they have multiple DUI convictions on their record. The state legislature has revised the criminal penalties associated with drunk driving, with some people facing years in prison as a result. In most cases, sentences are not associated with first-time DUI convictions, but an initial conviction can make it more difficult to avoid incarceration later on.

Understanding implied consent in Tennessee

If you are pulled over on suspicion of drinking and driving, it can be tempting to refuse to go along with the testing methods that law enforcement tends to use, especially if you understand the shortcomings in those tests that often lead to the accusation of innocent drivers. The fact is, though, that Tennessee, like every other state, has an implied consent law that imposes strict penalties on drivers who refuse to cooperate with law enforcement when a test is requested.
