Alaska Criminal Laws

State criminal codes define criminal acts, lay out the elements of each, and outline the various punishments and sentences for those who are convicted. This section covers a broad selection of Alaska's criminal laws, such as driving under the influence (DUI), various drug crimes, robbery, assault, and homicide. While certain crimes, such as assault and murder, are prosecuted similarly from one state to another, other areas of the law are quite different. In Alaska, for instance, the recreational use of cannabis (or marijuana) was legalized through a ballot initiative. Click on a link below to learn more about Alaska's criminal laws.
