DWI Court: 17 Successful Graduates and Counting

Posted on Oct 23, 2015 in Featured News

On October 22, 2015, the Honolulu DWI (Driving While Impaired) Court held a graduation ceremony to celebrate the dedication and success of the program’s 17th graduate.

In speaking about what the DWI Court has achieved since it began in 2013, Honolulu criminal defense attorney Brian Kim said, “I’m sold on it.  It’s a little hard to describe, but you can actually see the changes in the people who make it through DWI Court.  They lose weight, their eyes get clear, and they find themselves again.  After entering the program, one of my clients said that he no longer had problems at home because he wasn’t drinking anymore.  This is a great program and it works.”
