Sen. Augare Pleads Not Guilty

Posted: Updated:

State Sen. Shannon Augare has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges for his incident on May 26. Augare made his initial court appearance Tuesday morning at he Missouri River Federal Courthouse in Great Falls. Federal prosecutors have charged Aguare with drunken driving, obstructing a peace officer and reckless driving. He reportedly fled from a traffic stop just outside of Cutbank on May 26. Augare was pulled over near the Blackfeet reservation and allegedly told a Glacier County Sheriff's Deputy he had no jurisdiction to make the arrest. The senator reportedly drove off after authorities tried to take his keys. His attorney, Joe McKay, says he will most likely file a motion challenging U.S. Magistrate Judge Keith Strong's jurisdiction. McKay has until Aug. 16 to file the motion. Strong has set a trial date for Sept. 16. The date may change if necessary.
