Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
You have grounds to appeal, from what you are saying, based on ineffective assistance of counsel if they did not properly represent you (not to mention filing a malpractice suit against the attorney and recovering any financial damages his malpractice caused you).
I am afraid that house arrest is something PA rarely uses in these second offense cases, but it is possible, especially if you prove negligence on the part of the attorney representing you.
