Can someone on electronic monitor be released early?

QUESTION:

Can someone on electronic monitor be released early if they follow all the rules and have comply with all the rules? The case involve in DUI felony and the EM was denied at first in court but in jail I was qualified for it and since on the EM i have never broken a rule or gone to where i am not suppose to because they never call me to say why i was here or why i was there or things like that, I always called if I need to be somewhere and wait till i get prove.

ANSWER:

It’s possible but unlikely. If you went into court with proof of daily AA meetings, perhaps the judge might consider it. But I would be hesitant to even ask … considering that the Sheriff gave you EM despite the judge denying it. I could see the judge ordering SCRAM in addition to EM more easily than having the EM bracelet come off.
