In an article from the Boulder Daily Camera, Mitchell Byars reports that recidivism is down and satisfaction for victims who participate in restorative justice processes is 100%. http://www.dailycamera.com/boulder-county-news/ci_30695015/restorative-justice-helping-boulder-county-juvenile-offenders
