Protecting your personal freedoms is a complicated task in the modern world, where many of the legal boundaries around personal rights and property are often shifting. When it comes to personal effects like a water bottle, you may face difficulty keeping a police officer from searching it if you are in public, but still have some legal options available if such an interaction with the police leads to criminal charges.

New bill proposes license restriction after DUI convictions

Interlock devices used heavily in Tennessee

After a DUI conviction in Tennessee, it is very likely that driver must submit to placing an interlock device on their ignition. These devices require a driver to prove that they are below the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) level to drive before the ignition will allow the vehicle to start.

Sometimes, a traffic stop itself may affect sobriety test results

If you receive drunk driving charges, you may believe that the prosecution has an open and shut case, you should just accept the charges and hope for the best. However, this is rarely a good strategy when it comes to any kind of criminal charge, especially drunk driving. Although the techniques and technology used by police to determine the sobriety or inebriation of a suspect do increase in sophistication over time, they are not flawless. If you recently received drunk driving charges, you may have more options than you think.

Does child endangerment complicate DUI charges?

Drinking before getting behind the wheel is always a very risky choice, even if you believe that you are below the legal limit of alcohol in your bloodstream.
