How to get a SCRAM Bracelet Removed
There is a law that grants the local probation company the ability to place the electronic monitoring system on your person. That law provides that when the Court is determining the amount of bail on a D.U.I. the Court is instructed to consider imposing one (1) of four (4) special conditions, according to T.C.A. 40-11-118(d)(2), if an individual has a prior D.U.I. conviction. These factors are as follows:
- Ignition Interlock device;
- Alcohol monitoring devices;
- Use of electronic monitoring with random alcohol and drug testing;
- Pre-trial residency in an in-patient drug and alcohol treatment program.
