Distraction inherent in using an ignition interlock device

Tennessee residents arrested for suspected drunk driving know they may face a range of penalties if ultimately convicted of such offenses. In addition to fines, drivers may also lose the right to drive for some period of time. In order to restore driving privileges, LifeSafer indicates that people must have ignition interlock devices installed in their vehicles.

What is a Ponzi scheme?

Not all criminal charges involve physical harm to people or property. Some types of crimes, often referred to as white collar crimes, involve allegations of harm via financial loss. If you have ever heard of a Ponzi scheme, this is one example of a white collar criminal charge. While the term “Ponzi scheme” may be familiar to you, how well do you know what it means or where it came from?

Distracted driving as dangerous as drunk driving

Tennessee residents are understandably concerned about the dangers they face due to people who choose to drink and drive. However, these drivers are not the only motorists that place innocent people in harm’s way due to their negligence and poor decisions. People who text while driving or use their phones to make and receive calls without the assistance of hands-free technology also create risks just as serious as those posed by drunk drivers.

What states have the most DUI arrests?

While there may still be some type of stigma associated with getting a DUI, more Tennessee residents should come to realize that virtually any driver can face these types of charges. Many a professional person who has stopped for happy hour with colleagues on the way home from work, for example, has experienced a drunk driving arrest. This is just one example of a situation in which a very responsible person can end up with a criminal record. You may even personally know someone who has had a DUI or perhaps you have been arrested yourself. Just how common is this in Tennessee?

Loan modification as a type of mortgage fraud

Most people in Tennessee have heard the term "white collar crime" but may not know all of the different types of things that can be classified as such. As with any type of criminal charge, an accusation does not mean that you are guilty. Additionally, there are times when something may appear to be fraudulent but in reality is not.
