When you violate an ACD it is usually because you are arrested again, didn't do the community service, or did not complete a class that the judge ordered. The original charge is re-instated and your attorney will be offered a Disorderly Conduct or misdemeanor plea. The Disorderly Conduct is a violation, not a criminal record. The misdemeanor would be a criminal record. You may face jail time, but probation or a fine is more likely for a first offense. Retain an attorney to resolve the matter.

Your case can be restored to the court calendar. This is discretionary with the prosecutor's office. Generally, though, the prosecutor's office declines to restore ACD cases to the calendar.

If you get in trouble while the 6 months is not up yet then you will not get the ACD and you will probably be charged with whatever the offense was that prevented you from getting the ACD.
