WVC 62 - 11 B- 13 §62-11B-13. Home incarceration for municipal court offenders.
Notwithstanding any provision of this article to the contrary, when a person is convicted under a municipal ordinance for which a period of incarceration may be imposed, the municipal court may enter an order for home incarceration as an alternative sentence to incarceration in a county or regional jail. A home incarceration sentence ordered by a municipal court pursuant to the provisions of this section is subject to the same requirements and conditions as a home incarceration sentence imposed by a circuit court or magistrate court pursuant to the provisions of this article. All home incarceration fees ordered by the municipal court pursuant to subdivision (7), section five of this article are to be paid to the municipal clerk, who shall monthly remit the fees to the sheriff.
