The Montana Supreme Court upheld the state’s 24/7 Sobriety Program in a ruling Thursday, saying charging associated fees for alcohol monitoring is not pretrial punishment in violation of the Constitution. The high court said breath-testing can be appropriate as a condition of pretrial release. But, they likened the testing fees to bail and said a judge must do an individual assessment to determine whether the program is appropriate for a defendant. Under the program, a judge can order people charged with a second or subsequent drunken driving offense to pay for twice-daily breathalyzer tests. From The Associated Press.
