Augare Has Officially Pleaded Guilty to His DUI Charges

Posted: Updated:

Today, Montana state senator Shannon Augere has officially pleaded guilty in federal court to his DUI charges.

For those of you who haven't heard, Augare was pulled over in may by a Glacier County sheriff's deputy for suspicion of drinking and driving. He then drove off, claiming the county had no authority to pull him over on tribal ground

Augare has now told US Magistrate Judge Keith Strong that he takes absolute responsibility for his actions and owns his guilt.

The senator, and his attorney, Joe Mckay wanted the federal case to be dropped, after he pled guilty and was sentenced in Blackfoot Tribal Court, but was since denied by Judge Strong. They respect this decision, but still believe that an infringement on the Tribal Justice System occurred.

Augare's sentence was made final today with a fine of $1,250, in addition to mandatory alcohol education class.
