SCRAM alternative for DUI

Question: Does the court ever change their mind? The court wants me to wear a SCRAM bracelet for my 3rd DUI. They said that I have to pay for it but I don’t want to pay for it if I don’t have to.
Answer: It depends on the situation. It may be possible to convince the judge to different options (ie. daily AA meetings). Some companies may alter the daily cost of the SCRAM depending on your financial status. Have you already been convicted of DUI? Or is this condition being imposed as part of keeping you out of jail while your case is pending? How many prior DUI’s do you have? What is the scenario with this DUI? Was there an accident causing injury involved?
