Alternatives to Confinement

Under some circumstances, it may be apropriate for the Court to consider a sentence that does not require confinement in jail for the entire period of confinement ordered. There are alternatives to complete confinement which fall into three categories:  Work Crew, Work Release, and Electronic Home Monitoring.  Ultimately, the Court determines which, if any of these alternatives are appropriate.  But, Benton County Sheriff has adopted policies concerning eleigibility, costs and procedures.  Click on the link below for the pamplet prepared by the Benton County Sheriff.
