DUI Number SIX is one of several charges a resident will face in court this week. 44-Year old Michael Murphy was arrested last year in Rutherford County and charged with his sixth DUI, vehicular assault and reckless endangerment with a motor vehicle.

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 culprits vehicle can also be seized and the offenders drivers 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.
