I had my first experience dealing with Tennessee’s new bail bond law for those accused of DUI second , DUI third, and felony DUI offenses. The new law may keep those accused of these crimes from being released on bond.In Nashville,Tn., once a person is arrested and can’t make bond their case is placed on the review docket .The review docket is usually held in courtroom 3C in the A.A. Birch Building.We filed a motion to set bond.The court granted the bond and released my client with the condition that he have an ignition interlock device installed.

I expect a lot more in the coming weeks on this issue.I am of the opinion this law will be challenged on constitutional grounds.
