Restorative justice: victim's family and offender find peace

For three months he kept his terrible secret – that he and two other young men were responsible for putting out the metal barriers that Christine was removing when she was struck and killed.. 

News of Fairweather's death and how it had occurred reached him the following day but he kept quiet. When he finally came clean it was a relief – but it would take meeting Fairweather's family to turn his life around.

"I thought long and hard about the restorative justice meeting. I thought how hard it would be to sit there and listen to what they had to say about the whole incident."
