Can I Plead to a "Wet Reckless" in Alaska?
Plea bargaining a reduced charge in Alaska drunk driving cases.
In some states, it’s possible for a motorist who’s accused of operating under the influence (OUI), often called driving under the influence (DUI), to “plea bargain” for a lesser charge. When such a plea bargain is for a reckless driving charge, it’s sometimes called a “wet reckless.”
Plea Bargaining in Alaska OUI Cases
Unlike some other states, Alaska doesn’t prohibit plea bargaining for a lesser charge in OUI cases. So, for someone who’s accused of drunk driving, plea bargaining for a wet reckless or some other lesser offense is a possibility.
