Another alternative to San Diego county custody is home detention. This is meant for offenders sentenced to probation with a custodial sanction. Offenders are fitted with a GPS and are monitored 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week.
The screening process requires a referral to County Parole & Alternative Custody (CPAC).
The eligibility criteria require that the offender have a verifiable residence, agree to participate, able to pay a portion of costs associated with GPS and is granted probation with custodial sanction.
The exclusionary factors to prevent this alternative to San Diego county custody is if the offender is precluded by the court, sentenced per 1170(h) to ICJ; no open/pending other charges, detainers or active warrants; no domestic violence with valid protective order; inmates with arrests or convictions for sex offenses to include sexual assault, lewdness, indecent exposure, or child victim crimes are presumptively ineligible.
PC 4019 credits are not awarded so consider an alternative sentence to ensure defendant serves same time in home detention as he/she would in jail (365 days in custody or 180 on electronic monitoring if eligible and complaint).
