Judge attends Nevada session

The National Judicial College in Reno, Nev., announces that the Honorable Susan Weaver of the 9th District Court in Faulkner and Van Buren counties has completed Impaired Driving Case Essentials, a course held Aug. 12-15, 2013, at the college.

After this course participants are able to recognize the scope of the drugged driving problem and define impairment as it relates to drugged driving; analyze under what circumstances a police officer can legally stop a vehicle and detain the driver; determine when, how and under what circumstances the police can lawfully search drivers, passengers and automobiles; and define addiction and its elements.

Weaver was nominated by the Arkansas Administrative Office of the Courts to receive a scholarship to attend this course.
