First-time DWI: How Broome DA’s office can reduce your charge with a 90-day ankle monitor

Media Type: Print/Online

First-time drunk driving offenders in Broome County could have a chance to avoid a criminal record and reduce their charges — as long they don’t mind wearing an ankle monitor for 90 days.

Launched in January by the Broome County District Attorney’s Office, the voluntary program includes alcohol-related counseling and crime victim impact panel sessions while the defendant wears a monitor for alcohol intake.
