What Is The Victim Impact Panel (VIP) Panel?

by Carl Spector on October 1, 2011

in New York DWI General Q & A

In certain circumstances as part of a sentence for a DWI conviction, the court will impose upon the motorist a requirement to attend the victim impact panel. This is a class that is sponsored by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) as an awareness program for offenders convicted of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. 

The panel presents victims of DUI related crashes and their families in an effort to give a first hand look at the pain and suffering that is caused but that is often overlooked in the criminal justice system.
