In order to participate in STAR, you will need to resolve any pending violations with your sentencing judge before you begin our program. However, you may want to apply to STAR and observe court sessions before any violation hearing so that your sentencing judge may take this into consideration when determining what sanctions, if any, you should serve before commencing STAR.
