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....
What are my odds of beating my DUI/refusal charge?
I decided to go for a drive after work. I work evenings, so this was about midnight. I received a phone call, so I pulled over and was parked on a road I didn’t realized was closed at night. An officer approached my vehicle to inform me that the road was closed, and said he smelled alcohol coming from my car. He informed me I failed my field serbriety test and was being detained. It was dark and on uneven ground. Plus, he had me remove my glassses to shine the light in my eyes, but I wasn’t allowed to put them back on, and I have an astigmatism. I refused a breathalyzer, because I don’t trust them. I have a clean driving record and this would be my first dui.

MVA in Waterford North Dakota and Police stated release on own due to injuries sustained in MVA> Driver does not remember anything due to multiple fractures in face/jaw and body.
