A young person who is charged with drunk driving can feel like his or her life is coming to an end. When the accident that led to the charge involves the death of another person, one's life can quickly become a nightmare. A young man from Tennessee was involved in such an accident when he was 18. The young woman who was killed was a passenger in his car. The man who had been driving was recently sentenced in a case that included charges of DUI.
Being arrested and charged with a sex crime is a serious offense that can leave a person feeling frightened and overwhelmed. A new Tennessee law may serve to add to those feelings of malaise. A law that went into effect on July 1 states that a person convicted of juvenile sex crimes is barred from living with his or her own minor children.
