ABOUT THE PROGRAM: The 96th District Court Judges will order first-time convicted drunk drivers to attend the Marquette County Drunk Driving Impact Panel. Each person is required to pay a fee. The money collected is only used for the program to cover expenses for the volunteers and any remaining funds are donated to the community.
The presentations are held quarterly and they typically consist of a police officer, an EMT and two victims whose lives have been affected by a drunk driver. They will tell their story about the experiences they have had either in their careers or in their personal lives.
The first drunk driving impact panel in Marquette County was held in 1994.
