DUI Penalties Defending Your Future & Reputation

Mississippi DUI Penalty Defense Attorney

First DUI Offense Penalties

After being arrested for DUI, you likely have a number of questions and concerns on your mind, such as what types of penalties you will be facing. In an effort to reduce drunk driving, the state of Mississippi has become increasingly tough on those convicted of DUI. Although you may not think that DUI charges are very serious, a conviction can affect your life in a number of ways.

  • Minimum of 48 hours in jail
  • Between $250-$1,000 in fines
  • License suspension for 90 days
  • Installation of ignition interlock device

The penalties for a DUI become more severe after each conviction.
