Great Falls Tribune Crime Reporter, Seaborn Larson, often pairs mug shots with his stories. He has several concerns about a Montana measure that would bar public release of mug shots until after a person is convicted of a crime. 

House Bill 236 was approved by the House Judiciary Committee on an 11-8 vote yesterday. The measure is scheduled to be debated on the House Floor tomorrow.
