dui victim's panel
As a general rule, if you are convicted of a DUI related offense, even if the charge is reduced to a lesser offense, the court will require that you attend a DUI Victim’s Panel. Your lawyer may even encourage you to attend this Panel even prior to the resolution of your case. Victim Impact Panels are held throughout the state of Washington. Panel speakers are people whose lives have been tragically affected by a DUI related offense. The Panels are generally two to three hours long, and typically consist of three to four speakers who discuss their personal experiences.
The cost associated with attending a Victim’s Panel ranges from $40.00 to $80.00 and is free in some locations for guests and observers. Check the location carefully, as there may be a restriction on the manner of payment accepted.
