BONNERVILLE COUNTY, Idaho — For Josh Perotto, the struggle to stay clean and be honest with an officer who could put him back in jail is the most difficult aspect of successfully completing his probation.

Perotto, 37, was placed on probation for eight years following a 2007 kidnapping conviction that also sent him to jail for a year. He said he never would have committed the crime if he hadn't been addicted to methamphetamine.
