This issue of the Central Virginia Restorative Justice newsletter tells the story of a teen who robbed a woman’s store. The teen felt very guilty about it and the storeowner found herself deeply taxed emotionally in coping with the break-in. Eventually the two met and he was able to express his remorse. The two were able to successfully reconcile.
