A: In Philadelphia, if you are out on bail and sentenced to house arrest, you will usually be allowed to come back a month later to be put on a monitor. This allows you time to have the phone company install a line and to get the equipment set up. Once you return to court for the surrender, you will have to wait in custody for a period of approximately 48 hours and then a sheriff will take you to your house to finish the house arrest sentence.
