Two persons with pending criminal charges were placed in Carbon County's Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition (ARD) probation program for first time offenders 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 the program or are revoked, then the commonwealth reserves the right to prosecute them on all pending charges. A person does not admit guilt in entering the program.

The two were placed for a year on driving under the influence (DUI) charges.

Placed were:

Prislyn Hosier, 32, of Nesquehoning, was arrested on Feb. 2 along Bertsch St., in Lansford. Given a test, the result was .19BAC.

She was ordered to pay $450 for the cost of the program, get a drug and alcohol (D&A) evaluation and follow any recommendation for treatment, render 15 hours of community service and license suspended for 60 days.

Debra Ann Wilson, 47, of Saint Johns, Luzerne County, was arrested on Feb. 5 along the Northeast Extension of the turnpike in Kidder Township. Given a test, the result was .19BAC.

She was ordered to pay $450 for the cost of the program, get both D&A and mental health evaluations, render 20 hours of community service and license suspended for 60 days.

Both must pay court costs and a $50 per month supervision fee while in the program.
