DUI 2nd offense – Rutherford County
Client was impaired and wrecked his automobile. His blood alcohol level was .24 (three times the legal limit) and this was his second offense. Client utilized a a transdermal ankle monitor for over six months as we tried to get him approved for a DUI court to better address his drinking issues. Due to the fact he lived in Davidson County but was charged in Rutherford County he was not eligible for either counties DUI Court Program. After six months we were able to use his positive utilization of the transdermal device get the district attorney to agree to a first offense DUI with 15 days to serve. The client had to serve 12 days in what was a certain DUI 2nd conviction with a mandatory 45 days, day for day sentence. A great outcome under these circumstances.
