This report proposes a model for a new criminal justice paradigm and then discusses "transformation" issues and impediments likely to arise in implementing the new paradigm. The proposed "restorative justice" paradigm is based in ancient Hebrews cultures as portrayed in the Bible. This paradigm defines crime as injury to victims, includes all parties in the response to crime, and addresses the injuries experienced by all parties as well as the legal obligations of offenders. The authors recommend the establishment and implementation of intermediate restorative goals.
