    You ask, "So do I have a chance of the DUI charge being dropped?" Seeing that Magee, MS is noted as the location, AND ASSUMING that the charge is a misdemeanor DUI in either the Magee Municipal Court or the Simpson County Justice Court, the answer to your question is, "MOST LIKELY NO," as it is very unlikely the prosecutors and law enforcement officials in this jurisdiction will just "drop" a DUI charge. My firm handles DUI and other criminal cases in Magee Municipal Court, Simpson County...

    Mississippi has a specific statute about this. When someone is convicted of certain violations of the "Uniform Controlled Substances" law, then a driver's license suspension occurs. Usually, it is set as a 6 month suspension by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. Mississippi's statute provides that you can petition either a County or Circuit Court for hardship order. So, it is a function of the court, with respect to a hardship driver's license. I've never known anyone to...

    Yes, it is "possible" to "beat" any case. But, the better question that you'll eventually get to is: is it "likely" or is it "probable" that a successful result can be achieved? I emphasis the word "eventually" because I always bear in mind that it is the prosecution's case against my clients . . . not the other way around! The prosecution has the burden of proving each and every element beyond all reasonable doubt. So, what will the prosecution's evidence be? That is critical to obtain...

    Mendenhall, and Simpson County in general, is tough. Tough law enforcement officers. Tough prosecutors. And tough judges. I know from experience, having represented (and currently representing) numerous citizens who have stood accused of DUI and other criminal charges in this jurisdiction. I recommend two (2) immediate things: First, I recommend that you DO NOT disclose any more facts or details about your case in a public forum such as this. Based on what you have stated, however, I...

    Lafayette Co. Justice Court and/or Oxford Municipal Court, where your charge(s) is/are most likely, don't appoint "public defenders" for criminal charge(s) like this. That said, consult with your parents and/or other relatives about doing what they can, financially, to help you hire a lawyer. One who represents himself (or herself) has not only a fool for a client, but a fool for a lawyer too, the saying goes. That saying is accurate in the world of Oxford, and University, MS, where the...

    You have asked: "Do I need a lawyer?" The answer: "Yes." Most lawyers offer free initial consultations, and then charged fixed fees for criminal cases of this nature.

    DUI = "Driving Under the Influence." DWI = "Driving While Intoxicated." Mississippi criminal law recognizes the offense of DUI, but doesn't recognize DWI, as some other states do. As for "legally eradicated," please see this previous answer from Avvo: http://www.avvo.com/legal-answers/what-does-the-term-legally-eradicated-mean--332038.html If you are facing a pending DUI charge in Mississippi, please don't go to court alone for it.

    "If you take a narcotic 19 hours before driving and get pulled over for dui is there away of getting out of this?" Yes, anyone accused of any crime has options that could result in "getting out of it," but no one can predict the future. What I can tell you is this: you MAXIMIZE your chances of a getting successful results with any criminal case - DUI; Driving While License Suspended; etc. - by having a skilled and knowledgeable lawyer representing you in court. You MINIMIZE those same...

    It depends. There will be attorney fees plus a filing fee in the court in which you file a petition for expunction (or "expungement"). The attorney fees usually include the preparation and work to prepare a very high quality and persuasive petition on your behalf, affidavits, etc., and to appear in court and argue the case for expunction for you. Further, most expunctions are discretionary with the judge. This means that a judge doesn't necessarily have to grant the expunction just because...
