Victim Impact Panel

  • Oct 5, 2011

The DUI Victim Impact Panel Program is an awareness program for offenders charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The panel is a non-confrontational presentation, consisting of crime victims telling personal stories of how impaired drivers forever changed their lives. Guest speakers, movies and information are also provided. The panel presents a unique perspective to the offender that is often overlooked or simply cannot be taught by the courts and the DUI offender schools.

The program was created with one purpose in mind: to show offenders first-hand about the trauma, physical pain, emotional suffering and devastation, financial loss, anger and frustration that is commonly experienced by innocent victims and their family members resulting from a DUI-related crash.

The Victim Impact Panel in Manatee County is presented the last Wednesday of each month at the Central Library, 1301 Barcarrota Blvd. Bradenton, FL. There is no cost to attend. We welcome family, friends and anyone interested in learning more about DUI. Pre-registration is NOT required.

Sign in begins at 5:45 p.m. and the presentation begins at 6:00 p.m. sharp. Participants will not be allowed to enter once the presentation begins. No cellular phones, drinks or food allowed.

For additional information, please call 941-749-3051
