Judge Assigns Penance in Church as Punishment

 Restorative Extra-Judicial Justice 

In Italy two youth who were brought to trial for robbery must also "do penance" in the Church...



Mestre (kath.net) In the Italian city of Mestre two convicted minors have received an unusual punishment, as the Austrian daily 'Kurier' reported:  A 15 year old and a 16 year old, members of a youth gang, were charged with robbery and extortion.

The judge decided for the following "judgment":  The boys must go to Mass every Sunday to Mass.  They must get volunteer jobs, earn good grades in school and apologize to their victims.

Original, from kath.net...
