Lutheran Social Services Restorative Justice
This program provides a community response to crime. The community circle is composed of a variety of community members who follow a structured process to address juvenile crime. It gives youth offenders, their parent(s) and community members the opportunity to be involved and come to a mutual agreement on ways to repair the harm done.
This option is used when the offense has impacted a whole community or when an individual victim declines to participate or is not available to participate in a Juvenile Accountability Conference.
The legal violation, its impact and appropriate reparations are discussed.
