Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, are you there?
Have you tried talking to the public safety department to determine their notations? They seem inconsistent with the statute and understanding their shorthand would be helpful.
Hello Mr. Garner,
Did not know we could chat online, I was told to give email and you would give a response to my concerns. Does it look like I have a felony with the information provided. It also says all records prior to 10/20/03 are converted records. I will call Public Safety and mail the Clerks Office inquiry on question and concerns.
Based on what I can see, the charge itself is a class C felony. Without seeing your exact rap sheet, and going strictly off what you provided, it would seem it was not coded as a felony. I some cases there are reporting errors on rap sheets.
As Alaska has no expungement law, and if to your knowledge this is NOT being reported as a felony, I would tread lightly before I engaged the state to verify the record.
I hope this helps.
