Read More Violation: Driving while Under the Influence

Facing: Up to 11 months and 29 days imprisonment; Fine of up to $2,500.00; One year suspension of driving privileges.

Result: Driving under the Influence (DUI) case dismissed; no loss of license, court costs, or fines.

Additional Details: Mr. Lannom's client was pulled over on February 26, 2011 for alleged erratic driving on I-40 West by the Tennessee Highway Patrol. The client complied with the officers request and submitted to a Blood Alcohol Test that registered at 0.18, over two times the legal limit. After extensive review of the video and other pertinent evidence, Mr. Lannom filed a Motion to Suppress the Stop claiming that the stop of the vehicle was unconstitutional as the officer lacked the reasonable suspicion necessary to effectuate the stop. The General Sessions Court agreed with Mr. Lannom and ruled that the stop of the citizen's vehicle was illegal pursuant to both the Constitution of the United States and the Tennessee Constitution, suppressing all evidence resulting from the illegal stop of the Defendant's vehicle. The Charge of Driving While Under the Influence (DUI) was dismissed and the charges expunged.
Read More Violation: DUI - Driving while Under the Influence

Facing: Up to 11 months and 29 days imprisonment; Fine of up to $2,500.00; One year suspension of driving privileges.

Result: DUI case dismissed; no loss of license, no payment of court costs, or fines.

Additional Details: On Feburary 6, 2011, a police officer alleged that a vehicle being driven by a citizen was weaving. As a result of this stop of the citizen, the State of Tennessee alleged he had committed the crime of driving while impaired with a blood alcohol content over .17, well over the legal limit. Citing both the State and Federal Constitution and after a thorough investigation, Mr. Lannom filed a Motion to Suppress the Stop of the vehicle contending that the stop lacked the necessary probable cause to allow for seizure of his client's vehicle. The motion was later granted resulting in the state being barred from using the illegally seized evidence. The charge of Driving while Under the Influence (DUI) was dismissed against the client, allowing him to maintain his license so that he could continue to work and support his family.
Read More Violation: DUI Charge

Facing: Up to 11 months and 29 days imprisonment; Fine of up to $2,500.00; One year suspension of driving privileges

Result: DUI case and implied consent dismissed; no loss of license, court costs, or fines.

Additional Details: Frank Lannom successfully challenged the constitutionality of Tennessee Highway Patrol roadblocks that led to his client's vehicular stop and subsequent arrest for DUI. The use of roadblocks in this case were declared unconstitutional and the case against his client fully dismissed.
Read More Violation: Murder

Facing: Death, imprisonment for life without possibility of parole, life imprisonment

Result: Three years probation; no prison time served

Additional Details: A 41-year-old cold case was reopened and this client was charged with murder. Upon review of the facts including the client's poor health and age which made a lengthy trial undesirable, Frank Lannom arranged a plea agreement and the client entered a "best interest plea," also known as an Alford plea, which gave the client three years of probation and no prison time to serve.
Read More Violation: Rape

Facing: Up to 30 years imprisonment

Result: No conviction; State ultimately dismissed all charges

Additional Details: This client was charged with rape as a result of incapacitation of the victim. Frank Lannom and Melanie Bean were retained six years after the incident, at which time the case remained pending. The investigation subsequently undergone by the attorneys uncovered untested semen samples; after obtaining an expert analysis of the samples, the same was found to not match the defendant. Upon counsel presenting this evidence, the State dismissed all charges against the Defendant.
Read More Violation: Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Murder (Class A Felony)

Facing: Up to 60 years imprisonment

Result: No conviction; No jail time served

Additional Details: In this case, Frank Lannom and Melanie Bean represented the so-called "High School Hitman." The high school student was charged with conspiracy to commit first degree murder in a highly publicized case. The case reached a pinnacle of national interest around Mother's Day when a young lady was taped planning the murder of her own mother with her boyfriend and a high school student represented by our firm. The 17-year-old had previously been taped buying a weapon which police alleged was for the sole purpose of committing the murder of the young lady's mother. The case was featured on the Nancy Grace Show where Frank Lannom appeared on behalf of his client explaining why there was no reason to believe that their client had planned to go through with the young girl's plan. Lannom's client was not convicted of any felony and served no jail time. He was the only defendant in the case who did not receive a conviction or go to jail.
Read More Violation: DUI Charge

Facing: Up to 11 months and 29 days imprisonment; Fine of up to $2,500.00; One year suspension of driving privileges

Result: Reduced to Reckless Driving, No loss of Driver's License

Additional Details: Frank Lannom's client was charged with a DUI after the client consented to a breath alcohol test reading of .13 blood alcohol content (BAC), which is significantly higher than Tennessee's legal limit of .08 BAC. After an intensive hearing, it was uncovered that the arresting officer made more DUI arrests than almost any other officer and was assigned to the DUI Task Force Unit. Despite the millions of dollars spent on DUI detection, this unit failed to keep a working video camera in the patrol car of the arresting officer, preventing the jury from having the opportunity to see the real evidence of what occurred the night of the arrest. After Frank Lannom challenged the accuracy of the breath machine and the lack of evidence, the State of Tennessee dismissed the DUI charge, substituting a lesser charge as well as allowing the client to retain his driver's license and keep his employment.
Read More Violation: Rape

Facing: Up to 30 years imprisonment

Result: All charges dropped!

Additional Details: In this instance, Frank Lannom's client was a Kentucky resident working in Nashville Tennessee as a store manager. The client was charged with rape of a twenty year old young woman. The charge of rape carried a minimum of 8 years imprisonment and could be sentenced up to 30 years if convicted, with mandatory lifetime community supervision and mandatory sexual offender registry. After two years of representation and a lengthy preliminary hearing wherein the young woman's credibility was challenged by Mr. Lannom, the State of Tennessee dismissed all charges.
