Electronic monitoring while at home due to a bail order does not constitute pre-trial detention

Commonwealth v. Dixon, 2017 PA Super 129 (5/1/17)

Mr. Dixon appealed the sentencing court’s decision to not credit his time spent on bail at home with an electronic monitoring device towards his sentence. The Superior Court refused to accept Mr. Dixon’s argument that federal court decisions required reexamination of rulings that such bail conditions constitute detention for the purposes of 42 Pa.C.S. §9760(1).
