DWI Sentencing Bench Card
The National Judicial College with funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has created a “DWI Sentencing Bench Card” that sets forth some important factors and considerations that a judge may want to consider when sentencing a DWI offender. The back side of the bench card provides a “Sentencing Information and Path to Success” form that gives the defendant written confirmation of the terms of the sentence and the obligations imposed. The “Path to Success” document is to help the defendant in understanding what happens in court, particularly since many defendants are unfamiliar with legal language and court procedure and appearing before a judge can be stressful. The DWI Sentencing Bench Card may be found here
