Not to be confused with “Sentencing Circles,” the Restorative Justice process highlights the harm done to the community and how the community, rather than the court system, can respond to crime in a more culturally appropriate and satisfactory manner.
Other Benefits include:
- Own your process
- Have your voice heard
- Cultural appropriateness
- Outcomes are unique to each individual
- Facilitates healing and closure
- Support throughout your entire process
- Individual and family empowerment
Speak with your lawyer, Justice of the Peace, duty council, or court worker about seeking Restorative Justice diversion.
