Tennessee Courts Increase Reliance On Electronic Surveillance of Citizens

My clients are often placed on bond with the restriction of being required to use a transdermal monitoring device as a condition of bond if the person has a prior alcohol-related conviction. These devices are not only embarrassing and cumbersome, but are also very expensive, sometimes as high as $125.00 per week.  We are able to obtain a court order to remove this device from my client's body by substituting the transdermal device for an interlock device that is placed on a vehicle the person is driving. New Tennessee laws now require that any person charged with vehicular assault, vehicular homicide or aggravated vehicular homicide SHALL be required to use a transdermal monitoring device as a condition of bond if the person has a prior alcohol-related conviction, regardless of how long ago the prior conviction occurred.
In addition to this law, Tennessee has also passed a new law making it a crime for the person required to wear the transdermal monitoring device to knowingly tamper, remove or vandalize it, as well as for any person who knowingly aids, abets, or assists a person in tampering with, removing or vandalizing a monitoring device. 



The crime is punishable by a sentence of up to 6 months and commission of the offense may also result in the revocation of bail of the original offender.

Increasingly, the right to bail is now conditioned on technology to monitor citizens who are accused but not convicted of crimes. If you are under monitoring such as this and need help with your charges, please give us call.

In the defense of the citizen accused,
