Criminal Lawyer in Franklin: Defense for Multiple DUIs
The penalties for a second, third or fourth DUI conviction become increasing more severe resulting in higher fines and longer jail sentences. You could lose your car insurance and your job. Finding new employment may be difficult. In order to gain a conviction, the prosecutor must be able to prove among other things that you were impaired by drugs or alcohol and that the traffic stop was lawful. There are a number of technical issues that can and will be investigated by a multiple DUI defense lawyer at our firm. Since the Field Sobriety Test is strictly voluntary and passing or failing these tests is a purely subjective decision on the part of the testing officer, the officer's conduct will be thoroughly scrutinized. Breath and blood test results may be skewed by failure to follow exact procedure.
Since January 1, 2012 a blood test is mandatory if:
- There is a passenger in the vehicle under 16 years of age
- The driver has been involved in an accident resulting in injury or death
- The driver has a prior conviction for DUI, vehicular homicide or aggravated vehicular homicide
All DUI criminal cases and civil DUI license suspension hearings are complex and involve technical issues. A criminal defense Attorney Brian Lee Nashis prepared to answer all your questions and help you to protect your driving privileges and your future.
