Evaluation of the pre-sentence restorative justice pathfinder

16 December 2015

The Institute for Criminal Policy Research has released an evaluation of the pre-sentence restorative justice crown court pathfinder, developed and implemented by Restorative Solutions and Victim Support. The pathfinder examined how well pre-sentence restorative justice worked in practice for serious acquisitive and violent cases in ten Crown Courts in England and Wales. Pre-sentence restorative justice was given a statutory basis by The Crime and Courts Act 2013, which enabled deferral of sentencing for a restorative justice conference.
