What's the Victim's Role in the Criminal Case Against the Drunk Driver?

Video Transcription:
The victim in a drunk driving accident has two main roles in the criminal case against the drink driver:

  1. The victim will testify about the driving that led up to the accident. For instance, was there any swerving, did the driver run a red light, etc.
     
  2. The victim will be asked during the sentencing to testify about how the accident has affected them, how and if it's changed their life and what it has cost them financially.
