Six first time offenders in the criminal justice system were placed in Carbon County's Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition (ARD) probation program this week by Judge Joseph J. Matika.
If a person successfully completes all the 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 charges. A person does not admit guilt in entering the program.
All were placed for a year, unless otherwise noted.
