DUI's are monitored so closely by MADD, SADD, etc., it is practically impossible to have a DUI dropped, remanded, etc. The only way you can get around this is if you find a defense to the charges, a flaw in the ticket, procedure, testing, etc.
This can be done by having a good DUI lawyer review your paperwork to see if there is a technicality you can expose and use to get out of this.
You must act extremely quickly, however, to get this done.
Understood. Maybe I was a little unclear.
The only way to avoid this is to beat the DUI. Otherwise, you're going to have to wait it out.
You cannot have a DUI expunged in Alaska, so your only chance to beat the 5 year period is to beat the ticket.
Public interest groups have come down so hard on driving under the influence that legislatures and courts are pressured into increasing penalties, etc.
It is unfortunate, but the squeaky wheel gets the oil!
