ARD for Simple Assault Case in Berks County PA

This morning I represented a young man who was allegedly involved in a domestic altercation in Berks County PA. Fortunately, given the circumstances, I was able to secure for him an ARD disposition.
ARD (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition) is a special program for first time offenders. By participating in this program individuals can earn an dismissal of their criminal charges as well as an expungement of the record. Additionally, there is no admission or finding of guilt - you are simply asking the court for the opportunity to earn a dismissal of the case. Typically, you will also be asked to perform community service and perhaps participate in treatment or classes, depending on the allegations.zorb balls
