DIVERSION SUCCESS STORIES

Social And Family Issues Contribute To Behavior

A 10-year-old boy was sent to Restorative Justice along after teaming up with two peers to commit many acts of vandalism and larceny including: spraying graffiti under a bridge, marking an RV with a Sharpie pen, shoplifting energy drinks and candy from a local pharmacy, stealing chrome tire valve stems off cars, and stealing change from unlocked cars.

Pet Therapy Success

A 12-year-old male was referred by the local elementary school for bringing a knife to school. This youth resided with his grandparents, because his father was incarcerated and abandonment by his mother at the age of 8. His Reparative Agreement included participation in a pilot program with “Pet Assisted Therapy” A college professor provided the assistance and support for the program.

Peer Issues Cause Problems

A 14-year-old female entered the program on a shoplifting charge. This youth dealt with peer issues in her school and suffered some hearing difficulties and developmental delays. Part of her Reparative Agreement was to participate in a teen nutrition program, which would expose her to a new set of peers in a different community in a well supervised and positive environment.
