Changes Made to the Chester County DUI ARD Program

Starting on October 1, 2011, the Chester County Council on Addictive Diseases (COAD) will no longer be participating in the Chester County DUI ARD program. The Chester County Adult Probation and Parole Department will be taking over these duties. The probation department will provide Alcohol Highway Safety School (AHSS), Court Reporting Network (CRN) evaluations and referrals for drug and alcohol evaluations to offenders.

I always recommend to my clients that they attend their CRN evaluation and AHSS in advance of their ARD court date because Chester County will waive the requirement that you perform 50 hours community service if these tasks are performed within 60 days of the ARD hearing date. My advice is to get these items completed as soon as possible unless you or your attorney have reason to believe your ARD application will be denied. Performing 50 hours of community service is hard to do on top of all the rigors of daily life. Read More
