It is very possible that if she is productive and successful she could be place on home monitoring system for the last couple of months of the halfway house. It is all contingent on how well she does while there.
Many times, they will allow a home monitoring because of space limitations and to open her bed, they will give her the home monitoring. But she must be worthy of it by not causing any trouble and participating in the programs offered.
I am 100 percent sure that she MAY be given home monitoring. It will be up to the Probation Agent to decide if she should be moved and given that opportunity or not.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX has been helpful. One more question before I click "accept answer". In what situations are people who are in a halfway house, always confined to a halfway house. Pre trial? Probation violation?
If they are not showing any progress, is the main reason.
A violation such as a dirty urine or something of that nature would have the probation terminated and the sentence that was suspended would be imposed, which could be incarceration.
Most offenders are given the halfway house opportunity because the Court finds something that says they deserve that chance.
