Ac­cused re­ferred to restora­tive jus­tice

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

SYD­NEY — A West­mount man charged with theft over $5,000 will have his case re­ferred to the adult restora­tive jus­tice pro­gram. James Ed­ward Lund, 48, of Mon­ti­eth Av­enue, com­mit­ted the of­fence in Glace Bay in July 2015. The theft in­volved a Glace Bay cou­ple. The pro­gram is an al­ter­na­tive to the main­stream court process and brings all par­ties to­gether to dis­cuss the crime and the im­pact on both the vic­tims and the ac­cused. The pro­gram also in­cludes a pun­ish­ment phase which can be over­ruled by a court. Lund is sched­uled back in court March 30 for a sta­tus re­port on his progress in the pro­gram.
