  • Accelerated Pretrial Rehabilitation — postpones a final judgment for a period of six months to two years, after which the charge is dismissed. Often used in cases involving first-time shoplifting and theft offenses.
  • Drug Education Program – First and Second-time drug cases – you can avoid a conviction provided that you complete a drug education course and community service.
