Mississippi DUI Laws
As in other states, you can be arrested and charged with a DUI if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) measures .08 percent or higher on a chemical test. If you are 21, the legal BAC limit is .02 percent. If you hold a commercial license, the legal limit is .04 percent. You can be arrested with these BAC levels whether you appear to be impaired or not. You can also be arrested if you appear to be impaired as observed by the arresting officer even though your BAC level is below the legal limit.
Penalties for a Mississippi DUI conviction include:
- For a first offense: Up to 48 hours in jail, a fine of $250 – $1,000, a 90-day license suspension, and completion of an alcohol safety program
- For a second offense: 5 days up to one year in jail, a fine of $600 – $1500, a two-year license suspension, completion of an alcohol safety program, and installation and maintenance of an ignition interlock device
- For a third offense: Incarceration will increase to one to five years, fines will increase from $2,000 – $5,000, and license suspension increased to five years
Other penalties include increased auto insurance premiums and a permanent criminal record that can be accessed on a background check by future employers, landlords, professional license agencies, and others.
