I was wondering if u can be charged again after he served a weekend in jail for being out of place.

Asked about 2 years ago - Leo, IN

They are charging him with escape when he was on house arrest but he never took off his monitor or his ankle monitor. so they kicked him off of home detention and he had to serve the weekend and when he got book in and stuff they came in and read him a warrant for escape was wondering if they can charge him for it again or not?

  1. Answered . One can be required to serve a jail sentence for violating the house arrest terms (whether through a Community Corrections program or as part of probation). The prosecutor can also, in some circumstances, file a criminal charge in addition. You should speak with a knowledgeable attorney to help determine what is happening.
