Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)


Adults convicted of a misdemeanor DWI or domestic assault are supervised by probation officers with specific caseloads. The DWI cases are all supervised by one probation officer with a specialized caseload. The court orders are reviewed and a probation contract is drafted which outlines the probation conditions specific to the case. DWI cases are supervised for one to six years.

Probation Conditions

Typical probation conditions include: jail sentence, fine, attendance at a Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Victim Impact Panel, and completion of a formal chemical use assessment, which could result in participation in an alcohol education class or in chemical dependency treatment.Offenders are also responsible for a probation supervision fee of $200.

Intensive Supervision Program (ISP) (Repeat Offenders)

Adults convicted of multiple DWI offenses can be court ordered to participate in the ISP. This program requires a high level of probation supervision, a curfew, a period of incarceration or several weeks of electronic alcohol monitoring, random drug testing, chemical dependency treatment or relapse treatment, and a fine. The ISP usually lasts 12 to 18 months and is followed by a lower level of supervision until discharge from probation.
