Welcome to the Virtual Office of Judicial Options.Com. We provide, supervised, offender-paid Electronic Monitoring (House Arrest) Services for non-violent, employed persons for the judicial community.
We offer a second chance alternative to jail for those individuals that the courts deem qualified that meet their criteria along with meeting the terms and conditions of our EM Application and EM Contract.
Judicial Options.Com is thebridge between the traditional EM (House Arrest) Program provided by the Probation and Sheriff's Departments for individuals where the Judge decides Judicial Options.Com would be better suited.
This alternative to jail is an opportunity to save California taxpayers the cost of housing non-violent, employed persons in local county jails and ease the increasing financial burden of the Courts and law enforcement agencies due to continued severe budget cuts.
Onlythe Judge in the case can make the decision to allow the individual to participate in our program.
Most cases considered by the courts for our EM program are out-of-jurisdiction cases for first-time DUI, first-time drug possession; petty theft, possession of stolen property, etc. Again only the Judge determines the sentence and if the person will be referred to Judicial Options.Com.
If the client is unemployed, but has a designated financially responsible party for payment, they may be eligible for our EM program.
The client must have a permanent residence.
We use 21st Century state-of-the-art technology with the GPS BLUtag® Monitoring Ankle Bracelets with VeriTracks® software along with Google®Mapping coordinates provided by the Satellite Tracking of People, (STOP.) This is the same equipment used by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitationin several counties.
Installation is quick because the client does not have to order an extra telephone line to be installed.
We need a Judge's Sentencing Order with the specific number of days to be served ( all deductions for time served, etc., must be made beforewe are given the Sentencing Order ) along with any other instructions relevant to the sentence.
Our agents are licensed and bonded (many of whom are retired Law Enforcement Officers and Military Reservists ) are provided by 0-60 ProcessServers. These agents are located throughout California and are trained to install the GPS ankle bracelets.
We program the addresses provided by the client which become authorized inclusion zones which creates the client's GPS Tracking Profile into the VeriTracks® tracking software. The person cannot leave their home unless the location has been authorized through their GPS Tracking Profile.
Authorized locations would include place of employment, mandatory alcohol education classes, school, daycare, church, doctor's office as examples.
We can program (exclusion)location addresses that the client is not authorized to go into the VeriTracks® software. Those unauthorized locations would be ordered by the court. First and foremost our commitment is to enforce the Court's directives via the Sentencing Order issued by the Judge in the case.
A Digital Photo is taken by our Agents, as evidence that the client was installed with the BLUtag® GPS Ankle bracelet along with their California Driver's License or California Identification Card ; this proof is sent to the Judge and all related parties in the case along with the Letter ofCompliance.
Wewill notmake any adjustments to the number of days of the sentence instructed on the Sentencing Order. Only the Judge involved in the case can reduce the number of days to be served on our offender-paid Electronic Monitoring (HouseArrest)program.
Judicial Options.Com treats all of our clients with respect.
We are not here to judge, the client has already been through that process with the courts.
Our commitment is to make sure the client stays in compliance with the sentence rendered by the Court through our offender-paid supervised GPS Electronic Monitoring program.
The daily rate is based on the income of each client; verification of income is required via pay stub, etc. All invoices must be paid in full prior to the completion date of our EM program. The Letter ofCompletion will be sent to the Court provided there are no violations to the terms and conditions of our EM program.
