Penalties for Alaska DWI
Being found guilty of drunk driving in Sitka can result in jail time, fines, loss of driver’s license, community service and significantly higher auto insurance premiums. The court has the discretion to sentence offenders based on a number of factors, especially prior alcohol related traffic arrests, a very high BAC or whether there was an accident with injury. Extreme measures may include mandatory alcohol assessment and rehabilitation treatment, installation of an ignition interlock device and vehicle seizure.
A conviction for DWI in Alaska would mean having a criminal arrest record, which could impact your employment opportunities and your ability to open a credit account.

About Your Alaska Driver’s License
Refusal to submit to a breath or blood test or registering a blood alcohol content of .08% or higher during an arrest for driving while intoxicated in Alaska, will result in the automatic suspension of your license. You can request an administrative hearing with the Division of Motor Vehicles in an effort to keep your license, but you must petition the DMV within 7 days of the date of your arrest.
The license suspension is separate from the criminal DWI case. If you are found not guilty of DWI in court, your license will not be returned until the suspension period expires.
