After determining Wednesday that he had jurisdiction to hear Austin, Texas, solo attorney Adam Reposa’s request to modify the manner and means in which Reposa serves a 90-day sentence for criminal contempt, Senior District Judge Paul Davis of Austin ordered that Reposa remain confined in the Travis County Jail through Feb. 12 instead of for the entire 90 days. “I want you to be there a full 10 days,” Davis told Reposa, who appeared before the judge in striped jail garb.

Davis further ordered that after Feb. 12, Reposa is permitted to participate in the Travis County Sheriff’s Weekend Alternative Program, know as SWAP, in which he will perform work in the community or for the county on weekends but will remain out of the jail. Davis also ordered Reposa to wear an electronic monitor and said Reposa would receive jail credit while wearing it.
