03 MONTANA'S FIRST CRIMINAL MEDIATION PROGRAM
In an effort to extend limited resources, Kirsten designed and implemented Montana’s first formal criminal mediation program to focus resources on the most dangerous criminals. Criminal trials have become prohibitively expensive, a single trial often costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. Through mediation, non-violent cases can be settled without the costs associated with trial while offering restorative justice, including restitution, to victims.
