Montana Judge on DUI Task Force Charged With DUI

A Montana justice of the peace set to preside over a DUI court later this year has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs.

BUTTE, Mont. -- A Montana justice of the peace set to preside over a DUI court later this year has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs.

An assistant attorney general filed the misdemeanor DUI charge Thursday against Robert E. Lee.
He's charged with driving to the Butte-Silver Bow County Courthouse on Nov. 13 while under the influence of methadone. The synthetic narcotic is used to relieve pain or prevent withdrawal from drug addiction.

Lee was to perform a wedding that morning.

A blood test confirmed the presence of methadone.

Lee says he does not take drugs and he is confident he will be vindicated.

Lee says he is scheduled in October to rotate in as the presiding judge for the county's new DUI court.
