Kinds of Crimes

At first, restorative programmes were used for juveniles with short records and relatively minor crimes. Over time, however, the programmes have been adjusted to work with adults as well, and with more serious nonviolent crimes and even violent crimes. The legal effect of agreements tends to vary based on the crime; for less serious crimes the judge may adopt the agreement as the sentence, while in homicide cases, for example, there is little if any impact on the defendant's sentence. In those instances restorative encounters are used to help the victim's (and the offender's) healing.
