A year after the launch of the "Fresh Start" program, which offers low-level offenders counseling and rehabilitation instead of fines and incarceration, Westchester County officials are celebrating its success. 

Since being launched in October 2021, the program has been completed by close to 200 participants, according to an announcement by the Westchester County District Attorney's Office from Tuesday, Nov.

22. 

"Through our successful partnership with county government and law enforcement, this program allows non-violent individuals facing low-level charges an opportunity to reset their course before becoming embedded in the cycle of recidivism," Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah said. 

The program, intended to "address the root causes of crime and to improve public safety," is offered to eligible first-time defendants who are charged with non-violent, low-level offenses such as petit larceny and trespassing. Those who complete the program are then not prosecuted by the District Attorney's office, according to Rocah. 

Those eligible for the program are required to complete a one-time, three-hour program with trained mental health peers who have experienced jail time, according to Department of Community Mental Health Commissioner Michael Orth.

"We are reaching people at the earliest point in the criminal justice system – giving them an opportunity to do better, and potentially saving substantial tax dollars by reducing the number of people who will, more deeply and often repeatedly, wind up on the wrong side of the law," said County Executive George Latimer.

All the times Kardashian fans think Khloe got too close to sister Kourtney’s men including her ‘dates’ with Scott Disick

KARDASHIAN fans are convinced that Khloe has gotten too close to Kourtney's boyfriends - and some even claim she went on "dates" with Scott Disick.

Earlier this month, Khloe was spotted out on a dinner date with her sister Kourtney's ex-boyfriend Scott Disick, fueling accusations that they've displayed inappropriate behavior.

Scott dated Kourtney on and off for nearly a decade before calling it quits in 2015.

The former couple co-parents their three children: Mason, 12; Penelope, 10; and Reign, seven.

But after Kourtney let Scott go, Khloe seems to have swooped in, as she and Scott were spotted leaving a Los Angeles restaurant together.

Their outing came amid speculation that their relationship has become "inappropriate".

Now fans wonder if Khloe and Scott's relationship might be crossing a line.

During season one of The Kardashians, the Good American founder asked Scott if he wanted a snack, like a gummy bear, as she showed him around the pantry at her epic new home.

The 39-year-old responded slyly: “Only if it’s going in your mouth. And you know what I’m talking about.”

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians alums then laughed off the naughty joke.

In another scene, Scott suggested that he “hire” Khloe as a “topless maid” as she cleaned up a mess from Scott’s dog on the floor, which viewers did not appreciate.

One Reddit user referenced the scene in a post, starting a discussion over the Hulu star's behavior.

One Kardashian aficionado asked: “Why does Scott have to be creepy every single episode? It's not funny?"

Fans have even slammed Scott for “flirting” with Khloe on Instagram after he left suggestive comments under her sexy pictures.

Some Kardashian fanatics have taken these remarks as clues that Scott could secretly be in love with his ex’s sister.

In July, he fueled these rumors by giving her $350 of romantic red roses for her 38th birthday.

However, Khloe has described Scott as her "bestie" and clarified that he is like a "brother" to her.

TRAVIS BARKER

Kourtney eventually found everlasting love with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.

But even then, fans were left in shock over Khloe's apparent "chemistry" with the drummer.

In a resurfaced video, years before he began dating her older sister Kourtney, the Hulu star played a raunchy game with Travis during an episode of Kocktails With Khloe back in 2016.

The drummer and his now sister-in-law got close in a sexually-charged game of pass the orange - which sees players pass an orange around a circle using their bodies and not their hands.

Travis tried to pass Khloe the orange from under his chin, as she placed an arm around him to get closer.

The Kardashians star rubbed her body against Travis in several failed attempts to pass on the orange as onlookers laughed.

Keeping quiet, Travis kept his hands away from Khloe's body as the pair awkwardly rolled the orange between their two bodies.

Wearing a tight-fitting corset top that showed off her cleavage, a glamorous-looking Khloe giggled as she got closer to the drummer.

He could be seen looking very different with a neatly-cut beard as he hid his embarrassed face behind a large hat during the game.

The clip came years before Kourtney started dating Travis in 2021 - with the pair getting married earlier this year in Italy.

YOUNES BENDJIMA

One ex Kourtney apparently doesn't need to worry about Khloe pursuing is Younes Bendjima

Kourtney and Younes dated on and off for about a year and a half before calling it quits in 2018.

In a 2021 episode of KUWTK, Khloe slammed Kourtney's ex.

It came as the sisters discussed Kourtney's love life.

Khloe asked her big sister if she still talks to “what’s his name,” referring to the 27-year-old Algerian model.

“No,” Kourtney replied, to which Khloe then asked, “Do you think he may have been a bit negative for you?”

Kourtney said, “Yeah,” before adding that Younes still texts her “once in a while.”

Taking to Twitter to stand by her comments Khloe wrote: “He was sooooooo toxic and negative for Kourt.”

When a fan asked if she was talked about Younes, Khloe replied, “Yous smart.”

However, Kourtney insisted that she doesn’t think about her previous younger man anymore: "I’m feeling really content with my own way of life,” she added in the episode.
