RJ Article Talbot, Mary E. . Public Responsiveness to Victim's Recommendations in their Sentencing Decisions: Role of Victim's Race, Victim Impact Statement and Judge's Instruction.
This research proposal is aimed at understanding the gap in justice between Caucasian victims and African American victims. The literature on Victim Impact Statements (VIS) provided in the penalty/sentencing phases in trials may provide some solutions to level the playing field. VIS serves as a voice for the victims or crime, and helps the jurors to see the victim as human being rather than a faceless victim. Studies have shown that the greater harm caused is related to greater blameworthiness of defendant (Feigenson, Park, & Salovey, 1997). Moreover, this research assesses whether the public supports restorative sentencing options for convicted offenders of burglary and aggravated battery, and whether this support generalizes to offenders who victimize African-American as well as Caucasian individuals.

Editor’s comment: Restorative justice
from the opinion piece by David Shrimpton in Talking Retail: The hub for grocery retail: The issue of ‘restorative justice’ debated at this month’s ACS Crime Seminar was an extremely interesting one. On the one hand, experts were extolling the benefits of the approach, claiming it can reduce reoffending rates by more than 25%. On the other, retailers were sceptical – as their experience of restorative justice seems to have been of police officers issuing summary remedies in an effort to wrap up the case as quickly as possible.
