Surprisingly, house arrest does not count as time served. I have personally always disagreed with this, but my personal opinion is not the law. That being said, sometimes the government will take the home confinement into account for the sentence that they request. You almost certainly have an attorney on this case, that's who you should be talking to about this
You should speak with your attorney about this. Generally, no, house arrest does not count toward credit for time served. However, your attorney may request that the house arrest to be considered as credit, and then it will be up to the Judge whether to grant that request or not.

Discuss this with your attorney., who probably said NO. There is no confidentiality online. Volunteering to answer this question does not create an attorney-client relationship.
