I am currently serving an 11.5 - 23 month sentence for a DUI & Recklessly Endangering Another Person charge. The judge allowed me to do my time on house arrest because the jails were so crowded. I spent 30 days in the county prison and am going into my 3rd month on house arrest. I have no idea how the system works but I was always under the impression that someone could try for parole halfway through their minimum sentence. Even though I am on house arrest, could I try for parole at my minimum halfway point (6 months) or would 11.5 months be considered the halfway point? On my court paperwork it says I will be released August 4th, 2010 which would be 11.5 months.
