Can I Plead to "Wet Reckless" in Mississippi?

Does The Magnolia State Permit Plea Bargains for DUIs?

The term, “wet reckless,” is used to describe a reduced plea arrangement made by a driver arrested for driving while intoxicated. (The driver pleads to reckless driving with alcohol involved -- hence the “wet” reference.)

A charge of wet reckless typically carries fewer obligations, punishments, and costs than a traditional DUI.

Mississippi is one of over a dozen states that prohibit plea bargains in DUI cases and for that reason, a wet reckless plea is usually not permitted in Mississippi.

That said, an attorney in Mississippi may, in some circumstances, be able to assist in reducing charges or reducing penalties associated with a guilty plea for a DUI.
