For years the law in Mississippi presumed that mothers were the preferred parent to raise children in the event of a divorce. Mothers received benefit of the "tender years doctrine" which created a legal presumption in favor of mothers of young children. The tender years doctrine is now a fond memory, replaced instead by the Albright factors, which includes, as one factor, the "age and sex of the child".
A long-held belief is that it's always best to refuse a breathalyzer test if you are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving. However, with Mississippi's new DUI law, it is now often smarter to take the test, especially for a first offense.
