How Does DUI Court Work?
DUI Court is a four-phase intervention program for adults who have pled guilty or been convicted of more than one DUI offenses and who are having difficulty staying sober. It is a collaborative effort between the State Court, Solicitor General’s office, defense attorneys, police agencies, probation, and DUI treatment programs. By working together, we seek to provide a variety of programs with intensive, consistent supervision geared toward supporting and helping a participant maintain an alcohol and drug-free life.
DUI Court involves frequent court appearances, intensive probation supervision, random drug testing, and intensive group and individual counseling. The Court awards incentives for compliant behavior and imposes sanctions for negative behavior.
