What are they?

Victim impact panels (VIPs) consist of a small group of victims of drunk driving tragedies who relate how their lives have been affected by the sudden loss of a loved one or injuries to themselves.   Panel members do not blame or judge offenders in the audience but attempt to affect the audience on an emotional level by telling their stories.  The victim impact panels represent a cooperative effort between  the Walworth County District Attorney's Office and Victim Services.

The  victim impact panels for 2015 will be held at the community room in the Matheson Memorial Library, 101 N. Wisconsin St. in Elkhorn, WI
