A: In Pennsylvania, ARD is not just for DUI. Whether you are eligible for ARD depends on your criminal history, the nature of the allegations and the particular facts of your case. Many non-violent offenses can be resolved without a conviction for people who have little or no criminal history. If you have either no criminal history or, in some cases, only a minor criminal history, you may be eligible for ARD if you face certain theft offenses, minor drug offenses or some other kinds of offenses.
