How a SCRAM Bracelet can change your life

What is a SCRAM bracelet?

SCRAM stands for Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor.  It is an alcohol motioning device which subjects must wear around their ankle to provide continuous monitoring. These devices are usually ordered for repeat DUI offenders in PA but may also be ordered for other criminal defendants when the court believes that alcohol consumption must be prohibited.
