(c) When a person is required to enroll based on a determination by the Division of Adult Correction pursuant to G.S. 14-208.40B, the Division of Adult Correction shall have the authority to exempt the person from paying the fee only for good cause and upon request of the person required to enroll in satellite-based monitoring.
