Recidivism & Sentencing of the Drugged Driver
December 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
JSI President Judge Peggy Hora (Ret.) will speak on Recidivism and Sentencing of the drugged driver. Unlike alcohol-impaired driving, drugged driving has fewer tools in the field to detect impairment and concentration levels in the body. 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 their ability to operate a vehicle. 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.
