No Decision on Pinkston

JayVaughn Pinkston's attorney James Famiglio had a scheduled appearance this morning at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown for his client's case. He was hoping that the District Attorney's office would accept their application for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program, which would allow Pinkston to be placed on probation and to serve out some community service and have his charges dropped at a later date.

Prosecutors in from the Montgomery County D.A.'s office did not have a decision for Pinkston, however. The court appearance therefore dealt with administrative matters related to the case and another appearance date was set for September (the exact day of which was not immediately available).

Regarding the ARD program:

Under that program, Pinkston would be placed on probation by the court for a period of one year and will have a mandatory community service requirement at that time. Assuming Pinkston completes the program without issue, the charges would be dropped at that point.

As Pinkston's attorney put it, there is "no news yet."
