A: The laws in Mississippi surrounding habitual offenders are complex and require expertise in the practice area of criminal law to be able to answer this question.

Specific to your question, House Bill 518 was titled the "Mississippi Access to Health Care and Patient Choice Act" and it does not concern criminal law or habitual offenders. Furthermore, House Bill 518 died in committee. If you have further questions, I recommend you contact a criminal defense attorney in Mississippi for help with this issue. I'd be happy to discuss the matter with you.
