On June 17, 2014 Janine Geske, former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice and Distinguished Professor of Law at Marquette University will provide a compelling argument for using restorative justice practices for greater victim satisfaction, better offender outcomes, cost- effective sanctions, and closure of the revolving criminal justice door. Although the drive to obtain convictions remains high, public concern over wrongful convictions, costly prison sentences, and racial disproportionality require criminal justice professionals to consider options beyond the increased use of plea bargaining to avoid life-destroying sentences. Justice Geskeā€™s comments will be followed by remarks from a panel of local criminal justice professionals:

The Honorable Judge Brenda Kennedy
Assistant District Attorney Dana Blazey
Assistant District Attorney Buddy Meyer
Assistant District Attorney Dana Nelson
Bill White
Liza House-Friend
David Gonzalez
