In-Home Incarceration

In-home incarceration is jail time that the Judge is allowing you to spend at your home. At the time of sentencing or at the time of revocation of probation, the Judge will tell you where you can and cannot go. You will receive a form that has Addendum “A” Additional Conditions of Probation near the top. This form outlines in detail the requirements of your in-home incarceration. You are to give a copy of this form to the in-home incarceration monitoring company that you choose to use. Deviating from the requirement on this form will result in a warrant for your arrest and a revocation of your probation.

The in-home incarceration monitoring company that you choose must submit weekly updates to your Probation Officer. You are responsible for making sure the updates are sent to your Probation Officer. Failure to submit these updates will result in a warrant for your arrest and a revocation of your probation.
