Restorative Justice Conference Agreement

If an accused pleads guilty to an offence that has affected a victim, a conference on the restoration of justice can be held if the victim accepts the trial and the moderators of justice agree that it is appropriate. The purpose of these meetings is to evaluate the issue to ensure that it is appropriate for a conference and the defendant and complainant are willing to participate. During this meeting, the conference is discussed and the parties can ask what they can have. The victim of the offence has the right to be with someone who supports her. It is not mandatory for the victim to attend a conference. The goal is for victims and defendants to agree on a path forward. Sometimes that means agreeing on a plan so that the accused can fix things. All concrete requests or offers that are the subject of a common agreement are highlighted in the report. At the end of the conference, the organizer will inform the organizer of the results of the conference (i.e. whether the issue is resolved or not). If both parties agree, the Restoration Justice will provide them with a copy of the agreement that will confirm the success of the conference and how the case was resolved. If the accused has pleaded guilty and restorative judicial proceedings are available, the judge must dismiss the case in order to provide an opportunity to determine whether restorative justice is appropriate.

Restoration equity is a process that aims to get things in order for the people involved and the people involved. This is done through a meeting between the victim and the accused, which is called a new conference on justice. The conference is private and is organized by trained facilitators. Lawyers do not attend the conference. Finally, the victim is asked what he or she wants to accomplish after the conference. The answer will be discussed with the culprit and all others at the conference. If an agreement is reached, a simple contract is written and signed (O`Connell, Wachtel, Wachtel, 1999). This is particularly important for an accused if the case is not resolved at the conference. Everything they said at the conference cannot be used against them afterwards, especially in the context of criminal proceedings against the accused. As soon as the terms of the agreement are met, the police will be notified.

The organizer meets in advance with each participant to answer questions and discuss the conference, including: If you have any questions or concerns about fairness restoration conferences or if you are looking for advice and support for your conference, please contact us. Justice Restoration staff will continue to monitor the case to ensure that the agreement and all actions that must be taken by both parties after the conference are taken. The conference organizer is a neutral moderator who organizes the meeting and prepares the participants for the meeting. The organizer will always be at the conference, with the child and someone to support them. This conference helped me see the side of the victim – a weight of my shoulders. Child who has committed a crime, 15 years, June 2016 If the parties can agree on what can be done, they can sign an agreement that is reflected: we use the restored court proceedings to reduce the over-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in the justice system by redirecting the children of the court to restoration justice conferences. A conference on restaurateurs may be used in place of traditional disciplinary or judicial proceedings or, if not appropriate, in addition to these trials (O`Connell, Wachtel, Wachtel, 1999). In Real Justice`s approach to restaurant conferences developed by Australian police officer Terry O`Connell, the conference mediator sticks to a simple written script.
