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.
