In this article Simms highlights a legislative achievement in 1997 in Maryland to effect juvenile justice system reform from a restorative perspective. Simms examines key components of the juvenile justice system targeted by such reform: accountability for all involved in and affected by juvenile crime; resource allocation; probation and aftercare; sanctions, and prevention and intervention.
