REAL DUI COURT
Real DUI Court in Schools Program – “Live”
(Ideal for large campus assemblies during the months of August-May)
We transfer the sentencing of a 1st time DUI offender from the county courthouse to a local school. This is a two-pronged approach for educating teenagers: the legal consequences of drinking and driving, and the role and decisions of the judicial branch. Students will directly witness the defendant’s detention, imposed fines and penalties. Following the sentencing the judge will make a brief presentation and co-facilitate an interactive portion of the assembly. The intent is to allow for significant dialogue among the students, defendant, judge, attorneys, law enforcement officers, teachers, and special guests. The 90-minute presentation concludes with a dynamic testimony from a victim of a DUI crash and/or a law enforcement officer.
Real DUI Court in Schools Program – “Virtual”
(The best option for smaller groups throughout the year or while school is not in session)
Students will be able to see the sentencing of a 1st-time DUI offender virtually through our reverse field trip inside the Superior Court. Students will witness the defendant’s detention, imposed fines and penalties. Additionally, students will hear from the judge, attorneys and law enforcement officers in the case. The 60-minute presentation concludes with an interactive Q&A time where students and teachers can ask members of the court about impaired driving laws and situations.
RDC Classroom Edition
(Best option for classes unable to schedule a "live" or "virtual" presentation.)
Students will be able to see a pre-recorded sentencing of a 1st time DUI offender and hear from the judge and attorneys in the case. We provide all necessary handouts and curriculum for the teacher to include in their lesson plan and schedule a time when AAC and a Drug Recognition Expert can come to the classroom to interact and answer questions the students have about zero tolerance laws and the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
In Addition to the RDC presentations, we provide lunch time activities to continue the conversation of DUI prevention. Students have the opportunity to ask questions to local law enforcement personnel regarding impaired driving laws and the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
