A: This is a little bit of a tricky question. In Mississippi, the length of jail time really depends on the value of the dirt bike. Depending on the circumstances, it could also be worked out to where a person may not have to serve any sort of jail time, and instead the person can participate in a special program to avoid jail and possibly ensure that this does not go on their record. Your best bet is going to be to get with an experienced criminal defense lawyer to discuss the case and determine the best course of action. Most law firms, including my own, offer free consultations to see what can be done to help you out.
