Some inmates who now spend their nights in Los Angeles County Jail can look forward to finishing their sentences at home as part of a new pilot project that will place them under an electronic form of house arrest. The Board of Supervisors on Thursday approved a pilot project that, if successful, could eventually allow 250 inmates on work furlough programs to serve out their jail sentences in their own homes. "I think this could prove significant in helping alleviate jail overcrowding," said John Scott, supervising deputy probation officer in charge of the county's work furlough program.
