Restorative justice process helps prisoners, victims
From Phil Haslanger's article in the Capital Times: Each of the 18 grads spoke a bit as they came forward to accept their diplomas from Sue Heneman, a Madison volunteer who was one of the teachers in the program along with Diana Shaw. What was striking was how many of them talked about becoming aware for the first time of the consequences their actions had on their victims, on the community. These men were here for big-time crimes - murder, sexual assault, running prostitution rings.
