You may face heavy fines, loss of driving privileges, jail time, a permanent record, increased insurance rates, and possibility an ignition interlock device.

The Truth About DUI/DWI In Biloxi, Mississippi, And Surrounding Areas

Driving while intoxicated is never a good idea, and it is important for there to be DUI/DWI laws. However, in recent years some law enforcement officials in our area have become over-zealous in their hunt for and prosecution of individuals suspected of drunk driving. Local police receive grants and funding from the federal government as well as MADD in order to pay for DUI-only officers and to set up weekend roadblocks. These particular policemen and women have a sole purpose of seeking out drunk drivers and making arrests, with their performance metrics including number of DUI charges given. In many instances, drivers are wrongly stopped or wrongly charged. If you were below the legal limit or feel you were stopped without cause, let our law firm protect your legal rights.
