Jackson Fourth DUI Defense Attorneys
An Aggressive Approach to Your Defense
In 2017, Mississippi updated the laws regarding DUI offenses, including the potential punishments. Previously, DUI conviction could be removed from a person’s criminal record after five years. This means that a persona facing a fourth DUI conviction could receive lesser penalties, as long as their previous convictions didn’t occur within that five-year period. Now, previous DUI convictions will stay on your record, meaning a fourth offense, regardless of when it happened, will be treated as a felony in the eyes of the law.

Felony DUI Defense in Mississippi
According to Mississippi code 63-11-30, a conviction for a fourth or subsequent DUI offense will be considered a felony and carry harsher penalties.
Potential consequences include:
- $3,000 to $10,000 in fines
- 2 to 10 years in prison
- The installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle for 10 years, at your expense
- The suspension of your commercial driver’s license, if applicable
In addition, if convicted, you will be subject to a diagnostic assessment to determine if your convictions are the result of a substance abuse problem. Should the results of this assessment prove that treatment is needed, in the eyes of the Department of Mental Health, you will be required to successfully complete a treatment program, at your expense. You will also be required to pay an additional fee to cover the cost of the assessment itself.
