Jail time only on weekends

Long story short, I had a friend who was facing some jail time (ended up not having any though). However, when she thought she might go to jail it came up that if you get a short jail sentence you can just serve it on the weekends.

Anybody have any idea why this is? It sounds completely idiotic IMO. This happened in Michigan, so maybe it's just here, but still.

My only guess would be for employment purposes.

Yup, I know a few people who did it. By actually spending 2 weekends in jail it got it off their record permanently.

By a few people, I mean myself.

happens all the time.

allows the time to be served without other repercussions. I.e. Job loss

Knew a guy that had to do 60 days from 9-5, Monday through Friday. Jails too crowded.

One of buddies from college (here in louisiana) got busted with a lb of weed when he was 17 and still in high school. He had to do a month long sentence and he would go in on friday evening and get out sunday afternoon until his sentence was done.

For some people being in jail on weekends would be more of a punishment than during the week. Gotta live it up on Saturday night, you know.

Correct. Weekend warriors are people who are in the drug court program.

I know a girl that was a weekender. The guy she married was also a weekender. Guess where they met.

This would be a good way to handle Updyke. One year in jail--but served on game weekends instead of all at once.

I know people that are under house arrest during the week and spend weekends in jail. They can just leave home to go to work.
