House Arrest

Home detention (house arrest) allows you to serve part of your sentence at your home.

You are required to stay within a defined area and you may be closely monitored for alcohol or other drugs.

What You Need To Know

  • Home detention is only available if the court system has the program in place.
  • You will be required to wear a GPS device that monitors your movements. This is usually done during sentencing, negotiated by your lawyer. The court must approve of the device and service provider.
  • You are financially responsible for the daily cost of monitoring.
  • Although you do not have to spend time in jail, home detention should be treated just as seriously. Failing to comply with any of the conditions set by the court can result in further consequences.
