I am sentenced to wear a scram bracelet for 180 days, my problem is I work at a private country club and as of June 20th my uniform consists of wearing shorts. I will not be allowed to keep my job if the bracelet is seen by the members
Contact an experienced attorney who regularly appears in that court. He/she can file a motion to modify the sentence and get the matter back before the judge. No way to tell whether such a request would be granted.
