What is the Driving Under the Influence (DUTI) Program?

Monroe County Driving Under the Influence (DUTI) Program

The Monroe County DWI weekend program, previously known as "Day Reporting Center" or "DRC/DWI Weekends" has been replaced by the DUTI Program

The program description of your responsibilities is as follows:

ATTENDANCE:

  • You must report to the Center for Diversionary Services on Tuesday from 3:00 pm-7:00 pm and Wednesday from3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. You will not be permitted to leave the facility during these hours. You are expected to be on time. Absences and tardiness are reported to the Court.
  • If an emergency arises and you cannot report to the Center, you must immediately telephone Security at 454-7350 ext. 3062. In the case of illness, you must seek medical attention and written proof must be provided.
  • You must sign the attendance log each time you enter the program. The sign in log is located at the security desk.
  • Drug and/or alcohol testing is required. Breathalyzers will be conducted daily; urine screens will be conducted weekly. Failure to submit to testing within 2 hours of being requested or tampering with a sample shall be considered a positive. The Court is also notified of any positive breathalyzer or urine screen.

THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE CENTER:

  • Drugs, drug related paraphernalia, or alcohol of any kind
  • Weapons of any kind
  • Electronics of any kind including phones.

PROGRAM FEE STRUCTURE:

  • A final report will NOT be sent to the court until full payment has been made.

If you don't successfully complete the DUTI Program, you will be called back to court and resentenced by the judge. For a misdemeanor DWI case, that could mean up to a year in jail, three years of probation, or a combination of both.
