Victim Impact Panel
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.
