If you are arrested for DUI in Smyrna, Tennessee, your case will start in the Municipal Court of Smyrna. One unusual feature of DUI cases in Smyrna is the compliance hearing.
What is a compliance hearing? Those arrested for a second offense DUI, a third offense DUI or a felony DUI face bond restrictions. The bond restrictions for a multiple offense range from the installation of an ignition interlock device to random drug testing. The court holds a compliance hearing shortly after one is released on bond.
What happens at the compliance hearing? Once your name is called, you take your proof that you have complied with the conditions of your bail bond. My suggestion is to install an ignition interlock device on your car or truck. After the compliance hearing, the court will reset your case to another date.
