Victims' Rights and Restorative Justice - Introduction Agreeing on a definition of restorative justice has proved difficult.

For example, in biblical times, a man could be sentenced to death for the rape of a virgin, but a married woman who was raped could be sentenced to death for enticing the rape....   [tags: Crime]
