Victim Impact Panels

In many DWI convictions, a skilled attorney can help you avoid jail time and even have your charges reduced, usually to a probationary period in which you may be subject to community supervision to ensure that you do not remain a danger to others. Probation commonly consists of community service, fines, regular reports, and in some cases may require you to attend a victim impact panel.

What Is a Victim Impact Panel?

As a condition of your probation, you may be ordered by the court to attend a victim impact panel. You can expect to encounter the following in this proceeding:

  • A non-confrontational presentation
  • Stories from victims regarding how drunk driving accidents have changed their lives
  • An opportunity to see the opposite perspective from a victim

Awareness programs such as this will often be accompanied by drug and alcohol testing, treatment programs, and other required activities.
