Information related to your Ketchican Gateway DWI

Because Alaska DWI laws are so harsh, driving under the influence is a bad idea in Ketchican Gateway.  Punishments can range from having your license suspended to alcohol rehabilitation, to having an ignition interlock device installed on your car, to paying expensive fines and fees, to going to jail and more.  If you find yourself in the predicament of receiving a DWI in Ketchican Gateway then you need to find a talented drunk driving attorney immediately to represent you.  You also need to understand as much as possible about the charges you face.

Below is good information about your Ketchican Gateway DWI that could prove to be helpful to you:    

  • Although it may be evident that you have had too much to drink, do not notify the law enforcement officer of this- Alcohol does not actually have an odor by itself so they really are not able to smell alcohol on you.  They may attempt to trick you into admitting you have been drinking but do not buy into it.  
  • Subjects who do not drink alcohol have been known to be arrested and charged with a DWI- We all produce alcohol naturally but some individuals produce so much that they could actually receive a DWI.  With this in mind, make sure you are honest with your DWI lawyer and let them know what and how much you had to drink prior to your Ketchican Gateway arrest.
  • Although field sobriety tests may seem to be a good way to measure a person's sobriety, they really are not- This is because whether or not you pass is determined by the officer who is providing the testing to you.  Remember that these tests are voluntary and it is usually a good idea to bypass them so you do not hurt your case further.
  • Breath tests do not measure your blood alcohol concentration-This test only provides an estimate of the alcohol in your blood stream while a blood test will provide you with a true measure of the alcohol in your system.   

It is important for you to fully understand your Ketchikan Gateway DWI.  In addition, make sure you contact an experienced drunk driving attorney as soon as possible to help you with your case.  Act quickly!  Call now and speak with the successful, dedicated and local DUI lawyers at who will compete to fight for you.
