Additional Details:  Client is a successful student enrolled in an out-of-state college and any criminal conviction on their record would hamper their career opportunities.  Client had previously entered a pre-trial diversion in another county on a prior Schedule II charge.  After being charged with possession of Schedule II drugs, the client was not eligible for pre-trial diversion again as a person can only enter one once in their lifetime.  We represented them in General Sessions, where we were able to obtain an agreement with the District Attorney to allow client to submit six months of drug screens without entering a guilty plea. Our client avoided a criminal conviction which would have been on their record and reportable for the rest of their life.

During the driving within the portion of the highway containing only two lanes there were no driving imperfections. The driving was captured on video. Client is stopped and charged with DUI and consented to a blood test registering a result well over the legal limit.  Our firm challenged the legality of the stop, alleging that it was conducted without a warrant and in violation of the Tennessee and United States Constitution. The challenge to the unconstitutional stop was granted in the General Sessions Court. The State elected to indict the citizen in the Criminal court, where the challenge to the stop of the vehicle was renewed. After a hearing the Trial Court also granted the Citizens motion to suppress the stop and seizure, effectively dismissing the charges against the Defendant.

Additional Details: The case resulted in a not guilty verdict following a jury trial in Smith County Tennessee on September 8, 2011. Mr. Lannom's client was stopped for traveling 68mph in a 45mph zone along Highway 25. After the officer conducted field sobriety tests he determined that the driver of the automobile was, in his opinion, under the influence. The stop resulted in several charges including, DUI, Implied Consent as well as open container. The arresting officer did not video tape any portion of the defendant's driving or field sobriety tests. Mr. Lannom challenged the sufficiency of the evidence, arguing that there was a lack of the same that resulted from faulty procedures that the arresting agency employs.

Read More Violation: Driving Under the Influence - Metropolitan Nashville, Davidson County

Facing: Up to 11 months and 29 days imprisonment, fine of $2,500.00, one year suspension of driving privileges.

Additional Details: Mr. Lannom's client was a passenger in the vehicle, of which she was the owner, when the vehicle was stopped by an officer in Metropolitan Nashville, Davidson County. The driver of the vehicle was subsequently charged with DUI, which resulted in our client being charged with DUI for allowing the driver to operate her vehicle. While the law is seldom employed, Tennessee automobile owners, who are also passengers may be arrested and charged with the same crime as the driver who is alleged to be impaired. A conviction of DUI, carries mandatory jail time and license revocation for one year. In Davidson County the arrest warrant directly alleges the crime of DUI for anyone charged with DUI as a result of allowing an impaired drier to operate her vehicle. All charges against our client were dismissed before trial.
