What are the possible advantages and disadvantages of a mediation process between family members of a homicide victim and their offender? In a homicide case, the victim is not able to speak. Evidence and the prima facie case (body of the crime), speak in the victim’s place. In the absence of this impact statement, how does the court measure how to restore the target (people, object, places) affected by this crime. Explain what restorative justice measures are used in your state to rehabilitate offenders and the families of the victim.
Your essay should have an introduction summarizing the criminal and case, a body that discusses the issues surrounding the case (how were they able to avoid being caught for so long – personality of the offender, lack of evidence available, lack of technology, etc.), and what led to their arrest and prosecution, and a conclusion that discusses the outcome of their prosecution along with what changes could have been made along the way which might have led to an earlier arrest.
Use Google Scholar to find the case legislature or court documentation that discusses the prosecution outcome. Be sure to include this reference on your reference page. Please follow APA guidelines; provide a title and reference page, use Times New Roman 12-point font, and double-space your lines.
