Seven first time offenders in the criminal justice system were placed in Carbon County's Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition (ARD) probation program on Tuesday by Judge Steven R. Serfass.

If a person successfully completes all conditions of the program their record is wiped clean. However, if they fail to complete it or are revoked from it, the Commonwealth reserves the right to prosecute them on all pending matters. A person does not admit guilt in entering the program.

Placed for a year, unless otherwise noted, were the following:
