MADD Classes and a San Diego DUI


The Law Office of Mark Deniz has the privilege of working with some of the best young legal minds in San Diego.  One of these persons is Alyssa Frazier.  Alyssa is a law student at Thomas Jefferson School of Law.  She is on the law review and one of the top of her class. She has an intense desire to help people.   She was invited to write on subjects that she comes across while working with the firm.

Today, she is writing about Madd Classes and how they relate to a San Diego DUI.



When a person pleads guilty convicted of a DUI,
they must attend a MADD class. This class can be a good learning experience,
and can help open someone’s eyes as to the dangers of drunk driving. A person
may not realize the risks they are posing when driving drunk, not just for
themselves, but for others. Although people are likely to know of these risks,
it is often they believe it will never happen to them. However, every time
someone gets into a car after drinking, they are putting their lives, and the
lives of others, at risk.

At our firm we request the client to attend as soon as possible as part of our Proactive Defense.

The MADD Victim Impact Panel is
designed to help show people the real life effects a drunk driver has had on
the lives of others. The panel usually consists of several people who have been
victims, either themselves or through their family members being harmed, of
drunk drivers. The victims will tell their stories in the hopes that it will
persuade people not to drink and drive in the future. This program is a helpful
program that will hopefully discourage people from driving while intoxicated. For
more information, visit www.MADD.org or view the information below.


MADD VICTIM IMPACT PANELSWHAT ARE THEY?

Mothers
Against Drunk Driving believes that drunk drivers and potential impaired
drivers need to hear what happens to victims in impaired driving crashes.  The Victim Impact Panel is a tool for
accomplishing this goal.

MADD
affiliates select a panel of two or three victims to speak briefly about the
impaired driving collisions in which they were injured or a loved one was
killed or injured.  They describe how
those crashes have tragically impacted their personal lives.  Speakers do not blame or judge those who
attend the panel.  They simply tell their
experiences and relate how their lives and families have been affected by the
crashes.  Victims do not speak to groups
in which their own offenders are present. 
There is no interaction between victims and offenders during the panel presentation
however everyone is invited to talk with the speakers when the program is over.

Judges,
probation officers and military commanders require convicted DUI offenders to
attend a Victim Impact Panel as an element of their sentences.  The panel does not replace conventional
sentencing but adds a relevant, thought-provoking component.  After the sentence is pronounced, the
offender is informed of the various dates, times and locations of the
panels.  Attendance is reported to the
courts for proof of compliance.  Warrants
will be issued for those offenders who fail to attend the panel and they must
return to court for appropriate sanction. 
NO ONE will be admitted if they are impaired by ANY amount of alcohol or
other drugs.

MADD
San Diego County conducts seven Victim Impact Panels monthly, 4 in English and
3 in Spanish, in the four county courthouses.
