When a defendant is sentenced, the court generally sets a date to report to the jail. But the court allows enough time to apply for home detention at the probation office.
The home detention program lets persons who have been sentenced to jail to continue to go to work.
Home detention used to be about wearing an ankle bracelet continuously during the period of home detention. Now, however, monitoring is done with cell phones.
There's a $30 application fee to apply for home detention. The cost of the program is $30 a day.
