YOUTH DUI AND OTHER ALCOHOL OFFENSES: A GUIDE FOR JUDGES AND PROSECUTORS

This TRAFFIC TECH reviews a new publication entitled "Sentencing and Dispositions of Youth DUI and Other Alcohol Offenses: A Guide for Judges and Prosecutors (see also TRIS 00765919) An interdisciplinary expert panel of judges, prosecutors, researchers, alcohol and other drug abuse counselors, probation officers and law enforcement officers worked together to develop this guide. The Guide is intended to help judges and prosecutors better understand the total range of available options for action when dealing with juvenile and youth alcohol-related offenses. It shows the potential payoffs of working cooperatively with related administrative agencies, such as motor vehicle departments, and community organizations. It suggests that there is a role for judges and prosecutors outside the courtroom to prevent underage drinking and alcohol-related driving offenses from occurring in the first place.
