    Mainline News Media: Conestoga High School teacher who passed out in school placed on ARD (Apr 15 2013)

    A Conestoga High School teacher who was arrested in December after police said she was found passed out and allegedly drunk during school hours was placed in an alternative probation program Tuesday, according to court records. Carol Wittschieben, 43, was admitted into the county’s Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition Program Tuesday for charges of disorderly conduct and recklessly endangering another person ... As a result of the ARD agreement, Wittschieben was sentenced to a year of probation and 100 hours of community service. She is also required to continue drug and alcohol evaluation and treatment programs. Donatoni said Wittschieben placed herself in an alcohol treatment program at the Malvern Institute shortly after the incident at the school. Wittschieben resigned from her teaching position at Connestoga High School after she was arrested.

    And because of this point:

    Successful completion of the program allows the charges to be expunged from the defendant’s record ...

    I'm going to flag this as a "deferred adjudication".
