Five first time offenders in the criminal justice system were placed in Carbon County's Accelerated Rehabilitation Dispositon (ARD) probation program on Thursday by Judge Steven R. Serfass.
If they successfully complete all conditions of the program their record will be 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.
