Mississippi DUI Law

Under Mississippi law, it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. Violating this law will result in a minimum $600 fine, a 90-day license suspension and up to 48 hours in jail.

A second DUI offense warrants harsher penalties, including a minimum $250 fine, a 1-year license suspension, and up to 1 year in prison. A successful DUI conviction can remain on your criminal record for up to 5 years.

Subsequent DUI offenses will involve a minimum $2,000 fine, a 1-year license suspension, and up to 5 years in jail. If a 3rd DUI violation results in the serious injury or death of a child, it is considered a felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

Defenses to DUI Charges

Our skilled Starkville DUI attorneys will use any means available under the law to minimize the negative impact of a DUI charge on your life.

We will evaluate your case for circumstances that can result in a dismissal or sentence reduction, including:

  • Insufficient evidence for reasonable suspicion to stop the defendant
  • Defects in administering field sobriety tests (FST)
  • Improper administration of portable breath tests (PBT)
  • Unlawful police interrogation
  • Nonadjudication
  • Ignition interlock devices.

Nonadjudication” is a procedure that provides first-time DUI offenders with some leniency by allowing the court to withhold a finding of guilt, provided the defendant satisfies certain terms and conditions. After completing the program, the court will enter an order of nonadjudication.

A person is eligible for nonadjudication if they complete the following requirements:

  • Pay a nonadjudication fee
  • Pay all fines imposed for ordinary DUI convictions
  • Complete an alcohol safety education program
  • Install an ignition interlock device
  • Agree to a 180-day license suspension
