DUI Expungement in Mississippi
Expungement is a request to have a guilty or no contest plea dismissed by the court so that it is removed from one’s record. In Mississippi, a person who is convicted of DUI when he is over the age of 21 cannot have his record expunged.
However, the court has the discretion to non-adjudicate a first DUI offense for a person under the age of 21. To non-adjudicate means to allow a first-time, nonviolent defendant to complete certain conditions and avoid a conviction on his record. If the charge is non-adjudicated, then after the conditions of the sentence are fulfilled and as long as the defendant has no pending charges, then the defendant’s record is cleared.
