I find it unlikely that the court would accept online community service. Being able to do such online would seem to take the service out of community service. In any event, you can ask the D.A. if that program would be accepted. Good luck to you.

Attorney Amos is spot on! Community Service is supposed to be performed in the community for the benefit of the community. The service usually has to be performed for a non-profit organization or a government agency or entity.

You have to have a site supervisor to sign off on the service and a community service coordinator will make the assignment.

Good Luck.
