This course provides you with an overview of sentencing practices and evidence-based options for impaired driving traffic offenses including those committed by younger drivers, older drivers, and hardcore DUI defendants. After this course, you will be able to analyze circumstances providing a legal basis for stops, searches, seizures, arrests, and the admissibility of testimonial or physical evidence. Impaired driving cases are often very technical and involved cases, which require a lot of specialized knowledge on the part of not only the attorneys, but also the judges. In addition, the rate of recidivism with impaired motor vehicle offenders is high, and judges should be well-equipped with the methods needed to reduce repeat offenders. This course is designed to provide judges with an overview of the impaired driving issue, and will provide insight into several pertinent areas, such as impairment detection methods, the pharmacological effects of drugs and alcohol on the human body, and effective sentencing methods.
