  • How long can Tennessee hold an inmate for an misdemeanor for another county?

    Patrick’s Answer

    The answer to this question begins with their right to a expedited extradition hearing and the underlying facts and nature of charge in which he is being detained. In addition there is a difference between the type of warrant and the particular purpose in which it is applied to this individual.

  • Can I still drive with a dui I haven't been to court over yet

    Patrick’s Answer

    In Tennessee, you can have your license taken if you refuse to take the breathalyzer under the "Implied Consent." If you did not refuse to blow, you can still have the right to drive under many circumstances. Although there is not enough information regarding what exactly you were charged with besides DUI and your past history. I would recommend contacting an attorney that review all the facts and circumstances before deciding to drive.

  • Can I still,get in trouble after they let me walk? Do i,still have to be a c.I.? Is it illegal to,leave me completely alone ?

    Patrick’s Answer

    Generally, they would have already charged you, before letting you go. Many times fear of future prosecution is a hollow threat and could be unconstitutional if instituted at a later date. You need to speak with an attorney before you say anything else.

  • Does polic have to read ur maranda rights to me if i was arested for avated demesic assuit

    Patrick’s Answer

    The Short Answer is Yes if you are under arrest and they want to question you. Long Answer is that often times they do not recite to you after you are under arrest and many times while trying to elicit a confession. There is a difference between being detained or put under arrest. Both effect your ability to go freely and at that point you should exercise your right to remain silent and request an attorney.

  • Can I contact a public defender if I have a warrant out for my arrest? I don't have money to hire one before I turn myself in.

    Patrick’s Answer

    A Public Defender can be appointed by the Judge after you turn yourself in, but it depends on other factors including employment and whether you decide to bond out of jail once you clear the arrest warrant. Be careful about posting details regarding your case on the internet.
