The answer to your question depends a lot on the county that you are in. There may be other options available to you, such as electronic home monitoring - which is an ankle bracelet that you wear and it allows you to work and like at home, while you serve your "sentence."
If you have an attorney and are not getting answers you need to get a new lawyer quick. As others have suggested, we need to know what county you are facing these charges. Good Luck!
Asking for a longer sentence isn't typical. Most Sheriff Work Programs I am familiar with are flexible on scheduling the days you work. If you have regular days off you may be able to complete the work program on your days off. Also, home detention usually involves electronic monitoring as well and there is a cost associated with it. Since you are working three jobs I assume money is tight. Home detention may be cost prohibitive for you.
