“I can make the difference between jail and freedom.”
Home detention can be an alternative to jail or prison in many different types of cases, although serious and violent felonies are generally excluded, but DUI, theft, fraud, and drug cases can use this as an effective alternative to jail.
Another option Attorney Joel Bailey has used to keep clients out of jail is the use of a SCRAM® (Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitor) ankle bracelet. This allows the courts to constantly monitor a person’s blood alcohol level trans-dermally and may be imposed as a condition of probation, or pre-trial release without bail. If a person fails to obey court orders and ingests alcohol, the monitoring program is notified and the person may be arrested.
An aggressive attorney can sometimes negotiate with the DA to strike a charge or change the charges, or convince a judge to stay a prison sentence, by incorporating the alcohol monitoring component and keep clients out of jail or prison.
With more than 22 years of experience in criminal courts, I’m very aggressive in defense of my clients. I work hard throughout every case, looking for ways to keep my client from being “warehoused” as a common criminal. As a criminal defense attorney, I am committed to helping people who have made mistakes or suffer from various addictions to avoid custody, get help, and be more productive.
Its almost always better to avoid jail time whenever possible. I can explain your options and will push hard to get the best possible result in your case. Contact my Vista criminal defense law office for an aggressive defense.
