Victim’s Rights, Restitution and Retribution

by Williamson M. Evers

Almost all rehabilitation programs have failed to alter criminals’ habits or reduce recidivism rates. The existing criminal justice system furthers victimizes crime victims, reducing them to items of evidence used to determine guilt or innocence. This is because crimes have historically been treated as offenses against the state rather than against the actual victims. In this study, Evers argues that crime would be reduced, and greater justice done to victims, by changing the current criminal justice system to one emphasizing punitive restitution, with the crime victim at the center of the process.
