Criminal justice students experience house arrest
EUREKA, Ill. -- A classroom debate over just how tough house arrest is has prompted a criminal justice professor at a central Illinois college to come up with what is literally a punishing assignment for his students.
Eureka College professor William Lally is offering willing students the chance to wear GPS ankle bracelets for a weekend during which they are not allowed to stray more than 100 feet from their homes.
Some are finding that home confinement is harder than they thought.
Sophomore David Flores of Joliet told The (Bloomington) Pantagraph that being in his room by himself was depressing and that he "might as well be in a prison cell."
Students say the assignment is giving them insights into what offenders go through.
