Bristol Law Society and Victim Support at the Bristol Crown Court are presenting an overview and update on the Pre-Sentence Restorative Justice Pathfinder from 5.30 p.m. on Wednesday 2 July at The Law Library, The Law Courts, Small Street, Bristol, BS1 1DA.
Bristol Crown Court is one of ten pathfinders in England and Wales that is delivering Pre-Sentence Restorative Justice. This is a process that brings those harmed by crime and those responsible for the crime, into communication to enable everyone affected by a crime to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward. This pathfinder is working with cases where defendants enter a guilty plea at Bristol Crown Court for serious violent or acquisitive offences (excluding homicide, sexual offences or domestic abuse). The restorative interventions are taking place in the period between guilty plea and sentencing, with the outcome agreements being shared with the Judge.
If you would like to attend or know more about the Pathfinder, please contact the project manager, Chantelle Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07508 803 349.
