Zent, with a long career in correctional services, relates his introduction to restorative justice perspectives. To a large extent, this came about in relation to issues regarding the status of victims in the current justice system. He remarks on how sensible restorative justice sounded to him as compared to retributive justice. On this basis, he briefly describes a victim-offender dialogue program in the state of Ohio.
