Cases That Should Not be Referred to Restorative Justice

Dr. Linsey C. Pointer in a blog post on May 3, 2021 asks where should we draw the line for restorative justice as an option in our legal system. “Whom would I deny the opportunity of restorative justice?” Surprisingly she suggests there should be caution in using restorative justice within our legal system for minor offenses but holds that as long as there is thorough vetting of both the person harmed and the person who caused the harm and trained facilitators, the healing journey should be available.

Also, Pointer’s website has many other items of interest relating to restorative justice.
