Monsey, NY: Criminal Justice Press.This study reports on interviews with 50 burglary victims from Hennepin County, MN to gain an understanding of their perception of fairness. The concept of fairness took on a variety of meanings for the victims; the most prominent dimension was the importance of opportunities to participate in the criminal justice process. Additional findings are presented. Three types of victims were identified: the "healer," who stresses rehabilitation for the juvenile offender; the "fixer," who stresses compensation and the need to face consequences by repairing damage; and the "avenger," who stresses firm punishment often in an institutional setting.
