House Arrest in Florida. Two Types: Pretrial Release or Sentencing Requirement. Stay out of Jail

We are talking about house arrest in Palm Beach County Florida.

Two types of people on house arrest.

  • People that are on pre-trial arrest or SOR, meaning your case is pending. This type of house arrest is the most restrictive. You will be drug and alcohol tested. You may be required to take a drug and alcohol evaluation or some other condition the judge ordered or
  • People that have been sentenced to house arrest as part of their sentence.

Could be a jail sentence that your attorney was successful having converted to house arrest or part of your probation is a term of house arrest.

House arrest means you are confined to your home.

You can't cut your lawn, you cant go to the mailbox, you cant swim in your pool, you cant go out of your home.

You can go to do things but you need an itinerary.

Some things may need to be ordered by the judge, for instance you need to go to New York for a funeral.

You will request an order to travel.

Getting a haircut will be worked out with your house arrest officer. Check out the video.

I was charged with Domestic Violence few years ago and I was referred to Roger Foley from a family member! Roger is a BULLDOG! He was great and very aggressive in helping me beat this bogus case. Case was dismissed! He was on top of everything until the end!! Thomas
My wife (Mother of Stepson) and I Hired Mr Foley to represent my stepson in a minor criminal case. We would highly recommend as it is obvious to us That Mr Foley Genuinely cares and wants to do the Best he can for you which he did for us. Also has a great rapport with all parties in the courtroom..... Steve
Roger P. Foley got me reinstated. Also he got my COS waived, and got me to still be terminated off of probation on my expected termination date. I feel very comfortable with the decision my lawyer made for me. Also I would refer him to anyone who has a criminal felony or misdemeanor case. Jamar
Roger is a very compassionate person, he truly cares about his clients. He helped me with my case and was there for me every step of the way even if it was just reassurance that I needed. I would recommend him to anyone, he is absolutely the best! Cassandra G.
I think your firm did a great job on 3 cases that were 28 years old. The results are better than expected. I truly appreciate the hard work that you and your firm put forth in obtaining the results that we did on this case. Jim
