Kent, WA seeks improved outcomes for repeat offenders and reduced costs with its DUI Court
Kent, WA DUI Court Improved Outcomes Repeat Offenders
The DUI Court offers a five-phase alternative path for DUI offenders with multiple violations. This path includes random testing, regular court appearances, and substance abuse treatment in lieu of jail time. Municipal officials can advance or hold back participants based on their completion of these requirements. Participants who complete two years of required activities graduate from the program, thus reducing drunk driving without the costs of imprisonment.
