ROSE VALLEY, Sask. -- A Saskatchewan man whose two young daughters froze to death after he drunkenly dragged them outside on a frigid winter night last year has won his bid to be judged by an aboriginal sentencing circle.More.
Considered a form of restorative justice, sentencing circles have existed in Canada for almost two decades for aboriginals. The suspects go before a jury of their peers to make amends through healing, apologies, punishment and treatment if needed.
Thanks again Pogs.
