POTTSVILLE — Fifty-one peo­ple re­ceived a se­cond chance thurs­day in Schuylkill County Court from the ju­di­cial sys­tem, as they en­tered a spe­cial pro­gram that could al­low them to emerge from their ex­pe­ri­ence with­out a crim­i­nal record.

those ad­mit­ted into the Ac­cel­er­ated Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tive Dis­po­si­tion pro­gram will be un­der ju­di­cial su­per­vi­sion and must com­ply with di­rec­tives from the court and the county Adult Pro­ba­tion and Pa­role of­fice.

“ARD is a pro­gram for first­time of­fend­ers with non­vi­o­lent crimes,” Pres­i­dent Judge Wil­liam e. Bald­win said.

the peo­ple who suc­cess­fully com­plete the pro­gram will have the charges against them dis­missed and can pe­ti­tion the court to have their records ex­punged, Bald­win said. Suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion in­cludes pay­ment of all costs, plus $50 to the Crim­i­nal Jus­tice en­hance­ment Ac­count, and per­for­mance of com­mu­nity ser­vice.

How­ever, those who do not com­plete it suc­cess­fully will be dis­missed from the pro­gram and have their cases re­turned to the trial list.
