Nine first time offenders in the criminal justice system were placed in Carbon County's Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition (ARD) probation program on Thursday 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 the program, 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.
