A: It is possible to receive credit for time served on pre-trial home incarceration, but it will depend on the specific circumstances and the laws in the jurisdiction where the case is being heard. Generally, if a person is found not guilty or if the charges are dismissed, they may be able to receive credit for time served on pre-trial home incarceration. However, if the person is convicted, the amount of credit they receive may be limited by law. It is best to consult with a criminal defense attorney in the jurisdiction where the case is being heard for specific guidance on this matter.
