On a more serious note, its a penalty, you lose freedom. But hardly sounds like a punishment

 

 

Whilst not exactly the same thing, in my youth I lost my license for speeding. I can tell you that not having the freedom to just drive down the street to get a burger, or other such things was exceptionally unpleasant. I was still working and caught taxis too and from, but all my non work time was spent at home. I did NOT enjoy that month at all. Having your freedom restricted even in that manner which was far less restrictive was way worse punishment than the big fine and lawyers fees etc by far. 

 

 

 

 

I understand that. But, Home detention replaces prison, where you get full removal of freedom. Prison vs Home? Most likely I'd prefer home

Sure. I would be similar I suspect. However, I was counterpointing those who believe it would be an easy thing to do and not be unpleasant.

Yeah, while we joked about movies and playing games, well, you can do that I assume. Being shut at home isn't great at all, but you can certainly make it comfortable. If it was me, I'd love it, as I'm not in jail.

 

You would be similar you expect?? Surely its a slam dunk choice

No question in my mind.

The technology behind the monitoring of this is quite fascinating, even this audience would be surprised at what can and can't be done.





Hmmmm

I can't say much, however I can say that some units can detect alcohol / drugs etc, and some others will talk directly to units around them to keep them away from each other.





Hmmmm

And yet they aren't monitored well enough to prevent a wearer leaving their property and entering mine.
Suffice to say that he was lucky that I only found out that he was on Home Detention for interfering with children after he got re-arrested.
He had attempted to get into my house and was paying an unhealthy amount of attention to my then 6 year old step daughter.

Community Service - you turn up on a certain day/days each week and you get transported to a location where you perform some sort of community service such as cleaning a beach, highway or assisting with the maintenance of a park/community project. You get fed lunch on site, cant take your cellphone or own food etc.

 

 

That's Periodic Detention.  Community Service is usually less structured and up to the individual to organise and police themselves, while being monitored by their Probation Officer at regular intervals to make sure it's getting done.  

 

 

Periodic detention became community work in 2002 with the new Sentencing Act. Community service where sentenced offenders arranged their own work as repayment for their crimes disappeared at the same time and community detention (curfew) was introduced.
