S.M., a juvenile, was charged with violation of probation for a misdemeanor offense and was placed on home detention. S.M. filed an emergency petition to the Fourth District Court of Appeal arguing that the trial court lacked the authority to impose home detention in this case. The district court agreed. The state asked this Court to review the decision.

Justice Pariente is recused.
