House Arrest/Electronic Monitoring: Protect Your Rights
In some cases where a person arrested for a crime would ordinarily face jail, it may be possible for an attorney to work out an arrangement that involves house arrest and electronic monitoring. House arrest and electronic monitoring may be penalty options depending on the circumstances of the offense and the criminal history of the convicted individual.

Additional House Arrest Details
Under house arrest, a person is confined to his or her home with the exception of limited periods where he or she may leave for work or to attend school. Other than those exceptions, the person must remain within the premises. An electronic bracelet may be used to track that person’s whereabouts and activities. A failure to remain on the premises, or to otherwise violate the house arrest, will constitute a violation that results in incarceration.
For most people, house arrest and electronic monitoring is a preferable option. Not only does the convicted individual get to avoid incarceration, but he or she is still allowed to maintain a job or pursue education while satisfying a criminal sentence. There is typically a cost involved in a house arrest program with electronic monitoring.
