Learn your options to fight Tennessee's strict DUI penalties

In one of our previous blog posts, we discussed how alcohol can affect driving abilities. Those effects are some of the reasons why Tennessee has such strict penalties for a person who is convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol. We know that you don't want a DUI charge to ruin your holiday season, so you must learn about your defense options if you are facing a criminal charge for drunk driving.

How does alcohol affect driving abilities?

The things that can happen when you drive drunk aren't pretty. You risk your life and the life of every other person around you with that poor decision. Still, there are some situations that might necessitate driving after you have had alcohol. It is vital that you understand how alcohol can affect you so that you can decide if driving home after a party is really worth the risks.

Juvenile justice involves a lot of variables

A juvenile who is arrested in Tennessee will usually face the juvenile justice system. This system is meant to help rehabilitate the juvenile instead of just punishing the juvenile. Sadly, juveniles who find themselves in the juvenile justice system can often face difficulties in school and other aspects of life. Fighting against the charges the juvenile faces can often help to minimize the effects the case has on the juvenile.

Minors who are charged with possession can face serious charges

Children and teenagers are still trying to find their way in the world. Each day, a minor is faced with making choices that can either lead to positive or negative effects. In some cases, peer pressure might lead minors to make the wrong choices. One instance is when a minor is caught in possession of drugs or alcohol.
