Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD)

For DUI cases in Salt Lake City Justice Court, a standard sentencing term is that the defendant has to attend what’s known as a “Victim’s Impact Panel” put on by Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD).  It is held the fourth Wednesday of every month from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  It is a short class dedicated to teaching those convicted of DUI how their actions and the actions of others who have driven drunk have affected the lives of innocent people such as victims of car accidents resulting from drunk driving.  For more information about the Victim’s Impact Panel or about MADD and what it does, you can visit the MADD website.


The Alcohol Abuse Assessment

If you are found guilty or enter into a plea arrangement for a DUI or impaired driving chances are the court will require you to undergo an alcohol abuse assessment to determine your risk for substance abuse.  The results of the assessment will determine what type of substance abuse treatment you will have to do.  For most first time offenders, the court will require the basic Prime for Life substance abuse class which is a 16 hour course.  For those residing in Salt Lake County we recommend Assessment and Referral Services because they conduct only the assessment and do not do the treatment which follows, which means they have no incentive to over-assess.
