Post-sentence Motions pursuant to Pennsylvania Law

Once a person either pleads guilty or is convicted at trial, that person must be aware of his "post-sentence rights."  Once the judge imposes sentence, important timelines start running from that day of sentence.  For example, if the person wishes to fill a post-sentence motion to the trial judge he must do so within 10 days from the date of sentence.  If the person wishes to appeal, that appeal must be filed within 30 days from the date of sentence.

What is R.R.R.I.?

R.R.R.I. is the "Recidivism Risk Reduction Incentive," also known as state good time.  The purpose of this statute is to allow those convicted of a crime and who are eligible for R.R.R.I. an opportunity to participate in programs that will help reduce the risk the person will commit future crimes.

Chester County Drug Court

For those who have been accused of committing a drug offense, Drug Court is an option to consider.  Drug Court is another of Chester County's alternative disposition programs.  Drug Court is a 12-24 month program where the individual is placed under intensive treatment.  Its aim is to treat non-violent drug dependent offenders with intensive supervision to help those individuals overcome their addiction, rather than simply punishing them.

Chester County ARD program

The Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (A.R.D.) program is available to those individuals who are non-violent and have little to no prior record.  Generally, individuals enter this program when they have been charged with a first offense for driving under the influence.  However, this program may be available for individuals who have been charged with other non-violent crimes.
