Description

After the president of the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly was convicted of driving under the influence as a first-time offender, the Sun Star uncovered that Rick Solie had indeed been previously convicted of DWI in another state, something both the prosecutor and judge in the case had been unaware of. When open records requests were denied, the paper also filed a lawsuit to gain access to Solie's arrest records.
