Alternative Disposition | Section 17
In Pennsylvania, there are certain alternative programs which are available for first-time offenders of DUI and drug possession offenses. Similar to the ARD (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition) program available for certain first-time DUI offenders, there is another program called Section 17, or “Probation Without Verdict”, available for certain first-time drug possession offenders. Probation Without Verdict is defined in Section 17 of “The Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act” and allows for certain first-time offenders of non-violent drug possession offenses to undergo a period of probation and have their charges legally dismissed. The experienced drug possession attorneys at The Martin Law Firm can guide you through this complicated process.
