Project Reset and Reset+ can be completed  in one or two sessions. If you complete, the District Attorney's Office will decline to prosecute or dismiss your case and you will not have to appear in court. The record of your arrest will be sealed, and you will not get a criminal record for this case.

If you do not complete the programming or choose not to participate, you should appear in court on the date listed on your desk appearance ticket. There is no penalty for not completing the programming.
