DWI courts are designed as programs to address and change the behavior of repeat DWI offenders.

Ninth Judicial District Court judges Anne Rasmusson and Jeffrey Remick will preside over the three new DWI Courts. In addition, District Court judges Kurt Marben and Tamara Yon - who preside over existing DWI Courts in Pennington and Marshall counties - also will assist in Polk, Norman and Red Lake counties.

DWI Courts are one of several types of drug court programs in Minnesota. With the establishment of the new programs in Norman, Polk, and Red Lake counties, Minnesota has a total 50 Drug Courts - including 13 DWI Courts - across the state.
