Former Commissioner Pleads Guilty to DUI

Former Alaska Fish and Game Commissioner Denby Lloyd has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence. Lloyd entered the guilty plea Wednesday, and the city of Juneau dropped an additional charge of reckless endangerment as part of a plea agreement.

Lloyd was arrested last August in Juneau following a traffic stop. Police said his breath test registered a blood alcohol content of nearly twice the legal limit.

Superior Court Judge Larry Card handed down the sentence.  It includes the mandatory minimum of 33-days in jail with 30 suspended, three days to serve. An interlock device will be placed on his truck for six months once he gets his suspended license back. His license was suspended for 90 days.

Lloyd was $3,000 with $1,500 suspended.  His three day sentence begins tonight.
