AN ACT TO EXPAND THE USE OF CONTINUOUS ALCOHOL MONITORING SYSTEMS IN PUNISHMENTS IMPOSED FOR CERTAIN IMPAIRED DRIVING CONVICTIONS AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE PAYMENT OF AN ADMINISTRATIVE FEE AND COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH A CONTINUOUS ALCOHOL MONITORING SYSTEM AND TO CREATE A CONTINUOUS ALCOHOL MONITORING SYSTEM FUND TO ASSIST INDIGENT DEFENDANTS.
House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.
Modifies the proposed changes to GS 20-179 (Sentencing hearing after conviction for impaired driving; determination of grossly aggravating and aggravating and mitigating factors; punishments). No longer authorizes a court to order the Division of Adult Correction and Juvenile Justice to pay the costs of a continuous alcohol monitoring system when the court finds that a defendant should not be required to pay the costs of the system. Eliminates proposed GS 20-179.5, which provided that costs incurred to comply with continuous alcohol monitoring requirements imposed by a court as well as administrative fees are to be paid by the monitored person and created the Continuous Alcohol Monitoring Fund to be used to provide access to monitoring as a sentence option for indigent persons.
Makes conforming changes to the act's titles.
