Trial for Former Fish and Game Commissioner Delayed

Matt Miller, KTOO – Juneau

A jury trial for the outgoing Fish and Game Commissioner accused of driving drunk has been delayed for another two months.

Court records indicate that Denby Lloyd’s attorney has asked for the trial to be postponed until Feb. 14 before Superior Court Judge Patricia Collins. Trial was initially set for Dec. 6 in Juneau.

The 56-year-old Lloyd was initially charged in August for driving with a blood alcohol content of .143 and reckless endangerment because his wife was also in the truck.

He recently announced his intention to retire from the job and return to Kodiak.
