Driver sentenced for 2014 drunk driving wreck

A drunk driving arrest alone can cause several complications and challenges for Tennessee residents, even if no conviction ever results. If ultimately convicted, many factors can exacerbate the potential penalties a person may face. The presence of minor children in a car at the time of an arrest, a crash and more are some examples of things that may increase the consequences for those accused of driving while impaired.

Pair accused of scheming $6 million in investment fraud operation

Even within one category of crime, there can be an extremely wide variety of situations that lead a person to being accused of criminal activity. Theft is an ideal example of this. For many people in Tennessee, the word "theft" makes them think about someone literally taking an object or perhaps cash from another person or business. This is true but it is not always manifested in a straightforward way. For example, identity theft or fraudulent investment schemes may be ways that people illegally obtain what was otherwise not theirs.

DUI defendants now face harsher penalties

Tennessee has never taken drunk driving lightly. That is understandable since keeping people safe is important. However, it is also important to protect the rights of everyone, including those accused of crimes. However, just in time for the 2016 Fourth of July holiday, drivers in the state will need to keep an extra eye out for the long arm of the long as DUI penalties have taken a major step up.

Implied consent law part of new Supreme Court decision

As residents in Tennessee prepare for the upcoming holiday weekend, they can expect to hear about increased enforcement against drunk driving. However, the reality is that drivers in the state should always be aware as the risk of being arrested and charged with suspected impaired driving always exists. Along with the penalties that can come from a DUI conviction, people should also be concerned about the state's implied consent law.

What can be considered tax evasion?

Most Tennessee residents have heard about cases in which people are prosecuted for some type of tax fraud. However, news stories do not always provide a lot of details as to what exactly this means.
