Senator Olson Proposes Cost Savings for the Courts

The Senate's Judiciary Committee is considering a reform proposal from State Senator Mary Olson of Bemidji aimed at bringing down costs in the state's criminal justice
system. The proposal offered by the Bemidji DFL-er would expand the use of restorative justice programs in the state's court system.

Olson says restorative justice is a framework that engages offenders,
victims, and the community in repairing the harm caused by crime. And, it gives those most affected by crime options for participation in a variety of restorative practices that promote healing.
