Drug-Infused DUI Laws

Most people think driving under the influence is when you get behind the wheel while drunk, but the laws are far broader than that and can include being intoxicated by drugs as well. In fact, the law says having your ability to drive inhibited in any way could be considered grounds for an arrest.

This can even include legal or prescribed drugs like:

  • Painkillers
  • Antibiotics
  • Over-the-counter cold medicines

 

If you’re not sure how a substance may impact your ability to drive, it’s strongly advised you don’t get behind the wheel until you know for sure that your ability to drive won’t be impacted by it.

 

Joshua T. Crain can help you with all types of DUI charges, including both alcohol and drug-infused DUIs. If you have been arrested, Mr. Crain can work with you to review the evidence in your case and fight back to prove your innocence, and have your charges dismissed.

DUI vs Wet Reckless

In some cases, drivers in Tennessee can accept a “plea bargain,” in essence agreeing to plead guilty in exchange for a lesser charge that carries lighter penalties. For those accused of a DUI, that charge is called a “wet reckless.”

 

While this is essentially the equivalent of a “reckless driving” charge and is considered a Class B misdemeanor that could land you in jail for up to six months, most instances only carry penalties of a fine and points on your driving record.

 

For some people, this is a much better outcome than the maximum penalties a DUI conviction can warrant.

You should talk to an attorney before considering this option. Of course, if you believe you are innocent, you should never consider accepting a guilty plea for a crime you didn’t commit.
