Operating Under the Influence (OUI) is an offense that Alaska law takes very seriously. Few misdemeanor offenses come with mandatory minimum sentences, but OUI and Refusal do. It's essential to have an attorney explain:
- What operating under the influence is, and how this differs from driving under the influence;
- The potential insurance and employment consequences of a conviction for OUI or Refusal;
- The several components of an OUI criminal sentence, including the cost of imprisonment, the Alcohol Safety Action Program, ignition interlock device, driver's license revocation, and others;
- What aggravators or mitigators may impact the plea bargaining process;
- How to demonstrate to the court that you are either innocent of the crime, or that you are ready to accept responsibility for your actions.
