 The Court will not grant a motion for ARD where the application has not been presented to the District Attorney's office within 30 days of the arraignment date stated on the Criminal Case Scheduling form, absent extraordinary circumstances and unless the time for filing has been extended by the Court for cause shown. The Defendant shall file on the same day the ARD application is filed with the District Attorney a notice with the Clerk of Courts' office evidencing the timely presentation of such application to the District Attorney on the form provided with the ''Instructions for Filing for ARD.''

 The filing of a timely ARD application will extend the last day to enter a negotiated plea. The filing of an untimely ARD application will not extend the last day to enter a negotiated plea and will not delay the Criminal Pre-Trial Conference Date, the Call of the List Date (which is the last day for a negotiated plea) or the Jury Selection Date which are all established when the case enters the Court of Common Pleas and are listed on the Criminal Case Scheduling form in each respective case.
