Breathalyzer tests and false positives

When people are pulled over for suspected drunk driving, a law enforcement official may conduct a breathalyzer test to determine whether or not the driver is under the influence of alcohol. If they notice that someone was driving erratically, they may be convinced that the driver is drunk before they have even talked to the driver or asked them to step out of the vehicle. There are a number of reasons why breathalyzer tests can be wrong, and there are other issues to take into consideration with regard to challenging these tests in court.

Can you support your efforts to find a job after prison?

Once you have been released from prison in Tennessee, you face the challenges of rebuilding your life and working relentlessly to put your past behind you. Despite your knowledge that you have changed and are committed to making something of your future, other people may not recognize those changes right away and it will take time for you to rebuild that trust. However, with perseverance and determination, you can make progress happen. 

Detailing Tennessee's drug schedules

Many incorrect assumptions are often made about drug crimes in Memphis. Some may simply believe that if one is caught in possession of an illicit drug or controlled substance, they are automatically looking at jail. Yet given the number of drug arrests that are reported each year in the U.S. (1.63 million in 2017 alone, according to the Drug Policy Alliance), assigning a prison an extended prison sentence to everyone charged with a drug crime would result in a great many people being incarcerated. The penalty that one may face when charged with a drug crime will often depend on the circumstances of their arrest, yet even more influential is the type of substance involved.
