Crimes cause harms. Harms create obligations to which offenders need to be responsible and accountable directly to victims and communities. Restorative Justice focuses on the harm and the needs created by the harm. Restorative Justice can happen in conjunction with prosecution of violated statutes and the imposition of punishments, or it can replace traditional prosecution and sentencing in certain cases.
