DWI Offenders May Be Mandated to Attend AA Meetings

DWI offenders may be mandated to attend AA meetings.

If a person is convicted of a DWI offense, he or she may be instructed by the court to attend meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous. The intended purpose of sending convicted motorists to AA is to reduce sentencing and help break unhealthy and illegal behavior patterns. With the help of an attorney, the offender may present a case to the judge to reduce sentencing in exchange for attending a number of AA meetings.
