Governor Baker has recently signed comprehensive criminal justice
reform into law which included my legislation on Restorative Justice.
This will have an incredibly positive impact on the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts. The law allows restorative justice to be used in every
municipality across the Commonwealth. A juvenile or adult defendant
may be diverted to a community-based restorative justice program
pre-arraignment or at any stage of a case with the consent of the
district attorney and the victim.

Thank you to Senator Jamie Eldridge for filing and advocating for this
legislation in the State Senate, Chair of the House Judiciary
Committee Claire Cronin, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee Will
Brownsberger, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan, Erin Freeborn
and Communities for Restorative Justice, Arlington Police Chief Fred
Ryan, and all the advocates who worked so hard to get Restorative
Justice passed.

 Restorative Justice is now law in Massachusetts!
