How Does The ARD Program Apply To DUI Cases?

If you are arrested for Driving Under the Influence, then you need to contact an attorney as soon as possible so that you can be fully advised of your legal rights.

Every county in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has an ARD program that is administered by the district attorney's Office. ARD is short for Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition and the primary purpose of this program is the rehabilitation of the offender.

If you are charged with Driving Under the Influence, then enrollment in the ARD Program could reduce your driver's license suspension and eliminate the mandatory period of incarceration. More importantly, the successful completion of ARD will result in the dismissal of all charges against you and the opportunity to expunge any record of your arrest.

However, you should always discuss any possible defenses with an attorney before accepting enrollment into this diversionary program.
