House arrest is at the discretion of the sentencing court. The court sets the parameters. The very first consideration is whether house arrest meets the court's sentencing objectives (punishment, deterrence and rehabilitation).

The second consideration is community safety.

Finally, the court would expect the home to be clear of weapons, alcohol and drugs. There generally has to be a landline telephone.

No. Living outside the county of conviction may be a factor because of the supervision logistics.

Community safety relates to the need for incapacitation, which is that jail is used to keep the community safe by holding the offender in custody. The court must decide if the offender poses a risk to the community.
