Carlson was sentenced under the driving while impaired (DWI) law, his fifth offense, to incarceration of one year and a day with 60 days served in the local correctional facility, and the remainder served on home detention. Is Carlson eligible for unemployment benefits while serving a portion of his incarceration on home detention?
