Individualized justice means that the sentence imposed is proportionate to the severity of the offense, appropriate to the circumstances of the defendant, and designed to achieve specific goals, including recidivism reduction.

In doing so, a traffic judge must consider and apply appropriate sentencing alternatives. This webinar will provide an overview of the traditional purposes of sentencing, focus on effective sentencing techniques, and present examples of “evidence-based” sentencing to help reduce recidivism in impaired driving and other traffic cases.

What will I learn?

During this course, you will learn to:

  • Describe traditional purposes of sentencing;
  • Develop effective sentencing techniques specifically for impaired driving and other traffic cases; and
  • Recognize the importance of “evidence-based” sentencing practices.


Series Description:

To effectively and responsibly handle traffic cases, judges must not only weigh evidence and apply legal principles, but also provide meaningful access to the courts for all parties. This program will provide many of the basics for judges new to the bench to identify the issues that arise in handling traffic dockets and the tools to manage their courtroom with respect and with dignity.

Topics to be covered included: the Judge’s role in handling traffic cases, implicit bias and other access to justice issues in traffic cases, controlling the courtroom, impaired driving, toxicology essentials, commercial motor vehicles, and sentencing traffic offenders to reduce recidivism.
