Can my victim plead the fifth because she was drunk and got me charged with dv (assault) (felony)
My gf came home drunk and initiated a fight. I told her to leave and she continued. I tried to pick her up to put her outside and she fought me knocking us both down. I pulled her hair to try and pick her up. She started to yell so I tried to cover her mouth then she bit me, so I choked her. I got her out of the house and she called the police. They are charging me with felony assault and she doesn't want to press charges cause she feels bad and doesn't hardly remember anything. can she plead the fifth because she doesn't remember what really happened.
This is a fairly common tactic but it doesn't always work out so well for the defendant or the alleged victim. Yes,...
License Reinstatement Requirements in Alaska After 1st DUI

Can I be charged with a DUI if the police never witnessed me driving>
I woke up intoxicated at 4:30 in the morning with my friends saying that my car was in the ditch. They told me it has been there since 3:30 in the morning. The police came to my house at 4:46 am and started by saying "It's pretty cold outside, we're are coming in." so they just stepped in my house. They started questioning me and asked if I drove the car there, all I said was "I must have if my friend told me." and they pulled my drunk friend out of the other room, but he surprisingly passed the breathalyzer with a .00 . He did not witness me driving, but the police just got him to state that I was the driver. After being questioned they arrested me for an MIP, and possible DUI. Is there any way around the DUI?
Yes, they can charge you. Operation can be proven through witnesses, circumstantial evidence or your own admissions.
Will I have to complete the DWI course back in Arkansas or can I complete the course in Alaska.
I received a 2nd offense DWI in Arkansas back in July 2012. My first offense was in Arkansas back in December 2008. While In Arkansas in 2012 I paid my fine, hired a lawyer, and completed the ankle bracelet monitoring sentence. However, I moved to Alaska in January 2013 and my suspension has ended back in August 2014. I was wondering can I take my DWI counseling course in Alaska to try to get my license reinstated? This is part of the process I must complete to try to get my driver's license back.
Talk with the Social Security Administration to find out if you can do this. Also, talk to the County Clerk to...
How long are original court documents kept for DUI? Can AK provide an authenticated court document from 2001?
15 years ago I was convicted of DUI in Ketchikan. Although I was eligible for diversion I unknowingly used out of state alcohol classes not recognized by AK so the conviction stuck. I have recently been charged with DUI in Colorado (again lower BAC at 0.09). Colorado is a lifetime lookback state so this Ketchikan conviction can be used against me. However Colorado will require authenticated copies of the conviction from the clerk of the appropriate court. It appears that authenticated copies in AK require the original document to be present in the court. How long are original documents kept in Alaska court? Ketchikan Trial Court. When I look up the case online it indicates "All Records Prior to 05/14/10 are Converted Records."
Simple answer is essentially forever. Even if converted to digital they would be admissible as public documents....
