Drugged Driving Essentials
May 22, 2018 - May 24, 2018
Judge Peggy Hora (Ret.), President of JSI, will be lead faculty in the National Judicial College’s course “Drugged Driving Essentials.”
Unlike alcohol-impaired driving, drugged driving has no bright line test for impairment. Drugged driving cases require a judge to utilize a variety of judicial tools to effectively adjudicate these cases. In addition to the ability to determine which kinds of drugs an individual may be using, it is important to know how these drugs affect the individual, and may impair their ability to function. It is also imperative that a judge knows how to effectively craft sentences, which include treatment options, in order to provide a participant with the most beneficial mode of recovery.
