Summary

Lerman, David. (2000). Forgiveness in the Criminal Justice System: If it belongs, then why is it so hard to find? Fordham Urban Law Journal. 27: 1663.

In asking the question of the place and challenge of forgiveness in the criminal justice system, David Lerman advocates for its role in that system. He does this from his perspective as a prosecutor. His treatment of the issues looks at the possibility of forgiveness in the criminal justice system, restorative justice as a harbinger of forgiveness, impediments to forgiveness in the criminal justice system. Impediments include the culture of prosecutors, media influence, and lack of involvement from the faith community.
