    In most cases, those programs offer first time offenders (youthful & senior offenders, too) an opportunity to avoid the harsh sting of a criminal conviction, as well as the chance to continue gainful employment.

    We are, after all, a nation of second chances.

    At this stage of my life, forgetting things is rather easy, even when I wish to remember things.

    No one owes you an answer.
    You are receiving what you've paid to receive, nothing added to nothing gets you more nothing.
    However, the nothing is still free nothing.

    For a lot of defendants who do complete it successfully it is very much worthwhile. But in the end each person has to decide for himself/herself what amounts to a "waste of time."

    The best way to avoid having to make such choices is to simply OBEY all of their laws.

    If one OBEYS all of their laws, one will never run afoul of the justice system or law enforcement.

    Only you can prevent your arrest, as well as your subsequent prosecution, by simply OBEYING all of their laws.

    The benefit was that your conviction was expunged. If you didn't care then you should have taken the conviction.

    Why are you coming here and asking a stupid question if you already know the answer?
