DUI Expungement Laws in Mississippi
Under Mississippi law, only first-time DUI offenders qualify for expungement if they wait five (5) years after completing all the court requirements for the underlying offense. Furthermore, holding a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or a commercial learner’s permit at the time of the arrest will disqualify you from expungement.
The following are the six (6) conditions which you must meet to qualify for DUI expungement in Mississippi:
- You were not convicted of or currently charged with another DUI offense
- You are not a commercial driver
- Your blood alcohol content (BAC) was under .16 percent
- You did not refuse a post-arrest chemical test (e.g., breath test, blood test, etc.)
- You completed all the terms and conditions of your conviction
- Prove to the court your DUI conviction should be expunged by showing rehabilitation from your past mistake (i.e., finding a career, completing college, community service, etc.)
Remember, you can only seek expungement of only one (1) DUI conviction. Although records are removed from criminal databases, they will still be kept in a confidential registry in order to determine eligibility under the first-offender rule.
