Tuesday, September 10, 2013 1:15 am
The charge of DUI number five has been levied against a local resident by the name of Burnice Beach. Beach will appear in Circuit Court on Monday, September 16th before Judge David Bragg. The suspect will also face a violation of the implied consent law and driving without a license.
In an unrelated case, a man by the name of Jimmy Finley will face similar charges in court on the same date. Finley is currently behind bars awaiting his court date in Rutherford County.
In Tennessee, the fourth DUI and any DUI after the fourth is considered a class E felony. A class E felony requires the convicted offender to serve a minimum of 150-consecutive days in jail. There is also a mandatory fine of $3,000 to $15,000. The culprit’s vehicle can also be seized and the offender’s driver’s license can be revoked for 5-years. In fact, the offender can have his or her vehicle seized after only the second charge of DUI.
