First Offense DUI in TN

Tennessee has implemented strict legal penalties to use against anyone convicted of a DUI. The penalties you could face for a first-time offense include:

Tennessee also frequently requires first-time DUI offenders to drive around with an ignition interlock device (IID) for 6 months to 1 year. You will likely need to pay around $100 a month in taxes for an IID as well as more than $200 for its initial installation and eventual removal. You should also be aware that refusing to take a chemical test for the first time will trigger an automatic license suspension of 1 year.


The last thing you should do after being arrested for a DUI is to sit down and allow the criminal justice system to have free reign over your punishment. If unchecked or unchallenged, you could be excessively penalized due to exaggerated or purely falsified claims from the prosecution. Get ready to fight back with the help of a Murfreesboro DUI attorney who is not afraid to take the gloves off in your defense.
