Murfreesboro TN DUI with Drugs Defense Attorney

Experience you can count on

Now that prosecutors have successfully cut down on the number of driving under the influence, DUI, cases based on alcohol impairment, the new and emerging concern on America’s roadways is driving under the influence of drugs. In some ways, it is easier to be convicted of CUI with drugs because there is no legal limit of drugs in Tennessee like there is with blood alcohol content. Even testing positive for a miniscule amount of drugs can lead to an arrest in Tennessee. It is important to take criminal charges of this nature very seriously because the penalties can be severe. If you are facing DUI with drug charges in Tennessee, Murfreesboro DUI lawyers David L. Scott of the Law Office of David L. Scott can help. With two decades of knowledge and experience, attorney Scott is the legal advocate you need.

Avoiding serious penalties in Tennessee

Being convicted of DUI with drugs can change your life forever. You can acquire a criminal record that follows you around for the rest of your life. You might have to disclose this information to potential employers. You may even be barred from entering certain professions or being able to acquire certain types of professional licenses. Some penalties to be aware of include:

  • Incarceration – A person convicted of a DUI can face anywhere from a few days in jail to a year in jail. Some sentences are mandatory, such as when a person is convicted for a second or subsequent offense.
  • Fines – Fines may range anywhere from $350 to $15,000.
  • Driver's license suspension – A driver’s license suspension can last between one and five years, affecting your ability to get to and from work, school, doctor’s visits and other responsibilities.
  • Other penalties – Judges may order additional sentences, including community service, admission into a treatment program or probation.
  • Enhanced penalties – Penalties can be even greater in certain situations, such as driving in an impaired state with kids in the vehicle.

Providing a vigorous defense

While you may think that you should simply plead guilty to avoid the hassle of a trial, this route may not be in your best interest. A criminal defense attorney can discuss the circumstances involving your arrest, inform you of your rights and discuss possible options related to your case. Viable defenses may be available, such as:

  • You were not driving at the time of arrest
  • The law enforcement officer had no reasonable suspicion to stop the vehicle
  • Testing procedures were not followed properly
  • The law enforcement officer lacked cause to request a blood test
  • Your constitutional rights were violated

We will look at all available evidence to see which defense may apply in your case. We request certain evidence through discovery, such as a police dash cam that can show what did or did not happen.
