• Victim-Offender Mediation in Anchorage

      Trostle, Lawrence C.; Cunningham, Patrick (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 1994-10)
      Victim-offender mediation programs provide an opportunity for victims to meet the offenders face-to-face in the presence of a trained mediator for the purpose of resolving the injury of the crime in some way. Mediation is offered as a diversion from the justice system which the offender may accept to avoid more formal adjudication. This paper describes a pilot victim-offender mediation program in Anchorage which involves juveniles accused of certain offenses and the victims of those crimes.
