Can a person be guilty of drunk driving in Mississippi if they only had one drink?
A person can be found guilty of drunk driving in Mississippi, even if they only had one drink. What you have to look at is whether the judge can find sufficient evidence to find beyond a reasonable doubt, that that one drink affected you in a way which affected your ability to drive. In other words, were you under the influence of that one drink. Another part of the analysis that may come into it is, was that one drink combined with tiredness? Was it combined with a prescription drug, that you’re maybe not supposed to drink with? Or maybe a narcotic that you’re not supposed to drink with that had more of an effect on you. The easy answer is yes, you can be found guilty even if you only had one drink.
