    (a) Except in infraction cases, when probation is granted, the court, in addition to conditions imposed under section 16-53, may require as a condition of probation that the defendant submit to a period of detention in an appropriate institution at whatever time or intervals within the period of probation, consecutive or nonconsecutive, the court shall designate.

    (b) In misdemeanor cases, the period of detention under this section shall not exceed the shorter of fifteen (15) days or the maximum term of imprisonment authorized for the misdemeanor by division 3 of this article.

    (c) If probation is revoked and a term of imprisonment is served by reason thereof, the time spent in jail or other institution as a detention condition of probation shall be credited against the prison or jail term served for the offense in connection with which the detention condition was imposed.
