First Time DUI Attorney in Alaska

Charged with a first offense DUI in Alaska? We Can Protect Your Rights

Being arrested for a DUI can be a frightening experience, especially if it’s your first time. Typically, DUI clients who are first-time offenders have never previously faced criminal charges, giving law enforcement the advantage of exploiting an individual who is unaware of his rights. That’s why it’s imperative to remain silent, despite your anxiousness to resolve the matter upon your arrest.

Call our first DUI offense attorney in Anchorage today to learn more about how we can defend you.

The two ways which an individual may be arrested and charged with a DUI offense include:
  • Displaying signs of intoxication upon arrest
  • Operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .08% or over

First Offense DUI Penalties in Alaska

If a person has not been convicted of a DUI in Alaska within the past 15 years, then it is considered a first offense. If the first DUI offense did not result in an accident where another individual is severely injured or killed, then it is categorized as a misdemeanor.

First time DUI offense penalties are the following:

  • Minimum jail sentence of 72 hours
  • Fines of up to $1,500
  • License suspension for a minimum 90 days
  • Mandatory installation of ignition interlock device

As long as you didn’t refuse a breath test, you are eligible to apply for a limited license after the first 30 days of the revocation period have transpired. Prior to the DMV granting you a limited license or reinstate your license after your revocation period has ended, you must pay the various license reinstatement fees and adhere to the license reinstatement process as outlined by the Alaska DMV.
