This is the recounting of a juvenile offense mediation case, conducted by a Juvenile Court-sponsored Victim-Offender Reconciliation Program (VORP) near Portland, Oregon. The offense terrorized many of the victims, causing minor injuries and substantial property damage. The results of the mediation illustrate the healing and rehabilitative potential of this process for victims, for offenders and for the community.
