Description

The ABC 7 I-Team found that "every day in U.S. criminal courts, defendants are sentenced to home confinement. The public presumes that the criminals are actually following the court order by staying at home. But our investigation found that even the U.S. Probation Department, which administers home confinement, believes the system is ripe for abuse."
