One of the reasons a client facing a possible jail sentence should hire a highly experienced criminal defense firm to represent them is because we can help them make any possible jail sentence go much easier. In several areas in California, if you are approved by the court you can do your time in a private jail.
Why do clients try to do their jail time in a private jail? The answer is because it often makes the jail time much easier. In some cases, it also allows the person doing the time to leave the jail facility to maintain their employment. Due to the fact that you must be approved for this program, the jail facilities are considered safer and more flexible in terms of how the jail time is to be served.
If you are convicted of certain violent offenses you will likely not quality. However, clients who are convicted of drunk driving or theft offenses or a long list of other crimes may qualify. The cost for the private jail stay can range from $75 to $125 per day. However, often clients find the expense well worth it due to the benefits that private jail can provide.
