What is the Penalty for Perjury in Mississippi?

First of all, those convicted of perjury in Mississippi can never be called upon as a witness ever again. The exact penalties depend on the circumstances of the crime. If you committed perjury during a trial or indictment for a capital offense or a felony, you face a prison sentence of up to 10 years. For all other matters, the penalties are relatively less severe, but you still could face up to 10 years behind bars.
