Offender Stories

This site features victim's stories as well as stories from offenders. We're not trying to make offenders look like victims, asking for your sympathy; rather it's to let you know how it feels to kill an innocent person and live with blood on your hands.

We ask you to read these stories to get an idea about what DUI defendants hear at panels. It is very therapeutic for victims to tell their stories and the offenders feel they might prevent a death when others hear their stories.

We do not hate the drunk drivers - we hate what they do! Please act responsibly when you're out for an evening of fun.
