Weekender Sentences provide judges with an alternative to sentencing offenders to the county jail to straight time. Offenders who do not pose a threat to the community and who are employed are allowed to report on weekends to the Alachua County Sheriff's Department of the Jail. A Community Service staff member monitors offender's attendance and reports compliance and non-compliance to the Court and Probation staff.
Admission to the Program
Probationers are sentenced to weekender time in county court, and should report to Court Services within 72 hours.
The supervised probationer will be required to pay $40 cost of supervision each month while on probation.
