Prosecutors and members of prosecution teams are often at a disadvantage during drunken driving cases as defense teams are often well-funded and may have many more resources at their disposal. This can present a great challenge for the prosecution. Any benefit prosecutors can gain in these cases can help to slow or eliminate recidivism in the system. This resource aims to help prosecutors collect information in order to make more well-informed decisions in DUI cases. The more accurate the information prosecutors have to support their case the better their chances of stopping repeat offenders from taking advantage of the judicial system.
