Fighting for your rights after your DWI in Matanuska-Susitna

If you drive while intoxicated in Palmer or anywhere in Matanuska-Susitna Borough, then you should prepare yourself for tough Alaska DWI laws.  Being convicted of a Matanuska-Susitna DWI can include having to attend alcohol rehabilitation, huge fines, having your license suspended, having an ignition interlock device installed on your car and more.  You do not want this to happen so make sure you fight your charges.  In addition, you need to remember your rights.
Below are rights you need to remember after your DWI in Matanuska-Susitna:  

  • Know what the charges against you include- The police officer who arrests you should share this information with you.  Make sure you completely understand these charges.  If you do not understand them, ask more questions so you do understand them.

  • What you say can be used against you in a court of law- Because of this, do not answer anything you are not required to answer when law enforcement questions you.  If at all possible, speak with your Matanuska-Susitna DWI lawyer before you answer any questions posed to you.  With this in mind, use your call from jail to phone your drunk driving attorney.  

  • You should be aware of the charges that have been made against you- This information should be provided to you by the arresting officer at the time you are arrested.  Be certain you fully understand the charges.

  • Records that law enforcement has should be available to you too- Your drunk driving attorney will be responsible for this information and will use it to prepare your case.  Be sure to include your side of the ordeal in a detailed report for your attorney as well so they can compare the officer's record with yours. 

  • Be knowledgeable of the prosecution's witnesses and find defense witnesses for yourself- This information can be used for your case by your DWI defense lawyer.  

  • You have the right to an attorney- You can choose a Matanuska-Susitna DWI lawyer or one can be appointed to you.  Remember, even if you utilize an appointed lawyer, you will still have to pay fees.  Considering this, why not hire a drunk driving attorney who specializes in handling DWI's rather than having an attorney who handles all types of cases?  

  • You are not guilty unless it is proven otherwise- The prosecution must prove your guilt so do not let them make you think differently.  Make sure you discuss your options in detail with an experienced drunk driving attorney before you make any decisions about your case.
