Any kind of car accident involving driving under the influence can result in serious criminal consequences.

A vigorous defense may be needed when there are prior convictions

A DUI charge can lead to serious criminal consequences that can have an immediate impact on your life. If you have a previous DUI conviction on your record, it is important to understand how that previous conviction can impact your case. Prior convictions on your record mean a more vigorous defense may be needed and may prove beneficial when facing new charges in Tennessee.

Any kind of criminal conviction can make any subsequent similar criminal convictions more serious as penalties often increase with each conviction. When a person is arrested for DUI, prior convictions often mean more serious penalties if the latest arrest leads to a conviction as well. For one Tennessee man, serious penalties may result if he is convicted after his sixth DUI arrest.
