repairing the damage done to another person and/or his property.
This is the act of trying to repair the harm done. It may take many forms. It may consist of payment of money as compensation to the victim, or if the victim wishes, to a charitable organisation. It may take the form of work for the victim (especially when the victim is an organisation such as a small business or a school) or community reparation / payback- usually for a charitable organisation. It is not to be confused with community service. Ideally these placements should be the wishes of the victim, offence related and or based on the skills / interests of the offender. This will increase the success rate for completion and help to reintegrate offenders. It is important that placements are not degrading or demeaning. For some victims the preferred form of reparation is that the offender will co-operate with whatever type of programme he or she needs to help avoid offending in future, such as completing his or her education, acquiring skills, or attending treatment for addiction.
Action taken by an offender to repair harm done to a victim.
Money that the defendant has to pay as compensation. The money is to help put right what the victim suffered because of the offence.
Reparation is a Roman Catholic theological concept that humans are creatures who have fallen from an original state of justice in which they were created, and that through the Incarnation, Passion, and Death of Jesus, they have been redeemed and restored again in a certain degree to the original condition. It is closely connected with the doctrines of atonement and satisfaction. Catholics believe that they are restored to grace through the merits of Christ's Death, and that grace enables them to add their prayers, labours, and trials to those of Jesus "and fill up those things that are wanting of the sufferings of Christ" (Colossians 1:24).
In the philosophy of justice, reparation is the idea that a just sentence ought to compensate the victim of a crime appropriately. Typical forms of reparation include monetary restitution — a payment from the offender to the victim. Reparation to society as a whole through community service projects are another form.
