  • Many people are sentenced to jail – however, a great number of these people never step one foot into a jail cell. There are laws that allow for defendants to complete their jail time in alternative programs. Criminal defense attorneys, by necessity, have to become experts in finding alternatives to incarceration. Many defense clients are business people and / or have families and other serious commitments, and cannot afford to be taken into custody. Our office works hard to explore and use every possible alternative for them, thus often avoiding actual jail time. The following are a list of alternatives to being incarcerated or taken into custody. Home Electronic Confinement – Home electronic confinement can be arranged by either the probation department or a private company. This type of sentencing requires a person to remain at home, but at the same time, allows you to continue the activities which are necessary to your well-being and existence (such as attending work, school, Dr. appointments, attorney, court or DMV appearances, shop for necessities, care for your children and / or provide necessary care for a loved one who may be ill or otherwise unable to care for themselves). There is usually a nominal cost that is associated with the program. CalTrans Work – Many people who are sentenced to jail time, end up doing CalTrans work. CalTrans is a work crew that you may see when you are driving down the freeways of California. They are a group of people (usually dressed in orange vests) who are appointed through the courts to keep the freeway areas clear and clean of trash and other debris. They are also involved in various other state improvement projects, as ordered by the program. You receive credit for your work on the crew to satisfy your jail time commitment. Community Service Work – Each court has a separate office responsible for assigning community service work to individuals who are approved by the prosecutor and judge to perform duties to assist various organizations within the community (in lieu of jail time). 8 hours of community service basically converts […]
