What are the consequences of a DUI?
Depending on how many prior offenses you have, the consequences of your DUI conviction will vary–the more offenses, the steeper the repercussions. For a first offense, the consequences include:
- Up to $1,000 in fines
- 90-day license suspension
- 48-hour jail sentence
- Attendance in a court-approved alcohol education program
Each subsequent offense leads to more severe consequences. In Mississippi, a DUI will remain on your record—and can be counted against you—for five years. A skilled DUI defense lawyer can fight these charges to get them reduced or eliminated.
Underage drinking and driving
There is even less tolerance in this state for drunk driving when the accused is under the legal drinking age of 21. The blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for a legal drinker while driving is 0.08%, where for a person under 21 it is 0.02%. Like with a regular DUI, the consequences of a conviction can include fines, license suspension, and mandatory attendance to an alcohol-education program. With the firm’s experience in both DUI defense and juvenile criminal defense, they are uniquely positioned to handle these types of cases.
