The Consequences Of A DUI In Tennessee

If you are confronted with charges of driving under the influence, now is the time to get help from an attorney. The consequences of a DUI in Tennessee are too significant not to have an effective legal advocate on your side.

At the Law Office of J. Patrick Henry, our effectiveness in defending DUI cases comes from our attorney's experience as a law enforcement officer for 17 years. He made more than 200 DUI arrests during his career and understands every detail of the criminal procedure. He will use that knowledge to your benefit in court.

First-time DUI penalties may include:

  • Up to 11 months and 29 days in jail
  • A $1,500 fine
  • Loss of license for one year
  • Additional license reinstatement fees
  • Installation of a vehicle ignition interlock device
  • Enrollment in mandatory drug and alcohol treatment programs
  • Restitution for harm to another person
  • Higher insurance premiums

These penalties are even higher for repeat offenders or for drivers who test above .20 blood alcohol concentration.
