Hollywood does technocorrections

In my morning paper was a pretty good review of "Disturbia," which is essentially a modern riff on the Alfred Hitchcock classic Rear Window.  As a sentencing nerd, what really caught my attention was the fact that the main character in the update is house-bound because of a sentence of house arrest with electronic monitoring (instead of being wheel-chair bound with a broken leg as in the original).

Perhaps this is more proof that, as they say over at Corrections Sentencing, the development and more common use of technocorrections is inevitable.
