Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition is a program for persons with pending charges that are first-time, nonviolent offenses such as DU ls and retail theft offenses. Persons make application with the District Attorney's Office and if approved, are given various conditions to complete during a non-reporting period. These conditions can include, but are not limited to, payment of court costs and restitution, community service and treatment requirements such as drug and alcohol evaluations. Once the conditions are completed and if the participant has not incurred any additional charges, the case will be dismissed and expunged.
