i HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY JANUARY 2, 2009 5 DWI "Sentencing to Treatment Study', sllq)ws less than half of DWI offenders get mandated treatment Information courtesy NM DEPT of TRANSPORTATIONAlbuquer- que According to a study pre- sented by the UNM Center on Alcoholism, Substance Abuse, and Addictions (CASAA), the court records of 52 percent of con- victed second or third DWI of- fenders lacked orders for sub- stance abuse treatment as man- dated by New Mexico law. Re- cording treatment orders on court Judgment and Sentencing records is critical to the delivery and tracking of substance abuse treat- ment. The study, "Sentencing to Treatment Records Investiga- tion," also found that records of only 46 percent of second and third DWI offenders showed some type of treatment accessed. Of these cases, the most frequently noted kind of treatment was on an outpatient basis followed by residential treatment and treat- ment associated with drug courts. This records investigation study was funded by the New Mexico Department of Transportation Traffic Safety Bureau as part of its efforts to deter and prevent drunk driving. "Substance abuse treatment is critical to helping many offend- ers stop the deadly crime of drink- ing and driving," said DWI Czar Rachel O'Connor. "These results serve as a wake up call that we all need to work together to make sure that convicted DWI offend- ers are ordered to receive required substance abuse treatment and then actually complete the treat- ment." she added Researchers analyzed ap- proximately 25 percent of data records from DWI offenders with f second and third convictions. The random sample was drawn from Bernalilto, Chaves, Dona Ann, McKinley, Santa Fe. San Juan and Rio Arriba Counties. The records then were matched against online Judgment and Sentencing records and a final match against the State's treat- ment database. The study looked at three questions: l. What percentage of DWI second and third offenders are mandated treatment in the judgment and sentencing docu- ments? 2. What percentage of offenders are attending or receiv- ing the court mandated treat- ment? 3. What kind of treat- ment did the court mandate for the individuals contained in the sample? New Mexico is one of 36 states that requires treatment for DWI offenders and is considered to have a progressive policy by mandating treatment on a second conviction. Research shows that a comprehensive program of edu- cation, treatment, and some form of follow-up monitoring helps decrease repeat DWI offenses. "The findings from this study provide valuable information that can be used to ultimately make New Mexico roadway safer for all motorists," said DOT Sec- retary Rhonda Faught. Lead researcher, W. Gill Woodall, Ph.D., of 'CASAA, worked closely with Paul Guerin, Ph.D. of the Institute for Social Research and Jim Davis, M.A. of the Division of Government Re- search, all UNM-affiliated pro- grams. The study was funded by a '$25,000 contract to CASAA from the New Mexico Department of Transportation. The presentation was part of Governor Richardson's DWI Re- search Forum, a periodic ex- change of ideas by State agencies, the safety a.dvocates, and guests about cutting-edge programs to reduce drunk driving. AG says drug company violated ccxurt orders...NM gets share of million dollar settlement Information courtesy AG KING'S OFFICEI Santa Fe Attorney General Gary King says 1.1 million dollars will be paid to all 50 States and the Dis- trict of Columbia by Bristol- Myers Squibb (BMS) after the drug company acknowledged its responsibility for violating court orders in two earlier lawsuits.

Lordsburg High School Girls Basketball 2008-2009 needed to guard against anti- competitive conduct. BMS has also consented to court orders designed to avoid future miscon- duct. In two previous cases, BMS settled charges that they had un- lawfully deprived consumers of cheaper generic versions of two of its drugs, Buspar and Taxol. BMS paid the States 150 million dollars and agreed to two federal court orders allowing the States to detect future anti-competitive conduct. Both court orders re- quired BMS to notify the States of patent litigation settlements with generic drug competitors and required BMS to provide the States with yearly compliance reports. In March of 2006, BMS reached a settlement with generic drug manufacturer Apotex, Inc. in a patent infringement lawsuit in- volving BMS's drug, Plavix. This settlement triggered BMS's noti- fication obligations under earlier court orders in the Buspar and Taxol cases and was subject to State approval. The States said the Plavix settlement provided by BMS was inaccurate and incom- plete along with BMS's 2007 and 2008 compliance reports. BMS failed to disclose non-docu- mented "side" arrangements that a BMS official had made with Apotex. According to the States, the failure to inform the,States of the secret arrangements violated the Buspar and Taxol court or- ders. BMS acknow!edged respon- sibility for making incomplete and false statements to the States and agreed to revised court orders Date Opn0nent Time Mon.
