What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative Justice lets victims confront their offenders. It holds the offender accountable and involves the offender in repairing the harm caused to victims.
Restorative justice focuses as much on the victim and the community as on the offender. It views crime as a violation of the victim and of the community as a whole, not just a violation of state law. Agreements reached during these interventions often include financial restitution, community service and more.
