Chattanooga defense attorney Robin Flores tells News Channel 9 that attorneys who defend people charged with DUI may now be able to challenge their clients' charges, thanks to the results of a newspaper investigation. Flores says a story in the Memphis Commercial Appeal indicates a loophole in the law is not being applied fairly to people charged with simple DUI, who apparently face more jail time than people who kill someone while driving drunk. Flores sees the Tennessee Supreme Court being asked to rule on the law, but ultimately says the legislature will have to close the loophole to make the DUI law more fair.
