Electronic Home Confinement Eligibility Requirements in Orange County
Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney
I previously spoke about the advantages of obtaining electronic home confinement or house arrest if you are convicted of a crime. However, not everyone is qualified. Your criminal record and your current charged crime may disqualify you. Generally, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department only allows low risk and non-violent applicants.
Other requirements include:
- You must have been sentenced to Orange County Jail
- Have a residence in Orange County
- Have a telephone line in your home (not a cell phone).
- Agree to their conditions
The cost of electronic home confinement is based on a sliding scale determined by your ability to pay. The average can be anywhere from $15/day to $30/day, but depends on your ability to pay.
If you’re facing criminal charges, consult with an experienced Orange County Criminal Defense attorney. At the Law Offices of Nam Q.
