WHAT IS ARD? AM I ELIGIBLE?
ARD - Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition is a program for first time offenders in which your charges would be ‘set aside' and you would be required to serve a period of probation, complete community service, counseling and fines, at the successful completion of the program your charges will be expunged. If at any time you do not complete the program successfully, or violate any term of your probation, you will be terminated/revoked from the program and your original charges will then again proceed to trial.
