Can you plead my DUI down to Reckless or Careless Driving?

No.

Section 63-11-39 of the Mississippi Code Annotated specifically prohibits a judge or prosecutor from reducing a charge of DUI to a lesser charge.  Some states allow this; Mississippi does not.  So for the most part DUI is an all-or-nothing proposition in Mississippi, which is why it is important that you understand all of your rights before you decide whether to fight or fold.  Call me and we’ll get you in and I’ll explain them to you.

If you or a family member have been arrested for DUI in the state of Mississippi and you need help, give me a call at 601-991-1099. If you live outside of Jackson, Mississippi, call my Toll-Free Line at 866-991-1555.
