DUI Charges Can Cost You More Than Just A Fine

A drunk driving conviction in Mississippi can cost several thousand dollars in fines, court fees, the cost of completing mandatory education programs, increased auto insurance rates and more; but the financial impact may only be the tip of the iceberg.

A first-time conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol can result in suspension of your driver’s license. A second DUI could result in license suspension plus a jail sentence. A third DUI conviction may go on your record as a felony.

A person convicted of drunk driving following an accident may face enhanced penalties, especially if there were injuries. DUI resulting in serious bodily injury could lead to a felony charge and a lengthy prison sentence.
