Darius J. Brown
- District 2
The Victim-Offender Mediation Committee was established by the 138th General Assembly in 1996. There have been no significant changes to the statute since then. The composition of the Committee and the nature of the services provided by vendors selected to provide victim-offender mediation services, however, has changed since the program's inception in 1996. For example, the Court of Common Pleas is the principal beneficiary of the program but is not a Committee member. This Act updates the composition of the Committee; renames the Committee to acknowledge the broader scope of services provided by vendors selected by the Committee to run alternative case resolution services; updates criteria used to select vendors and reporting requirements; and makes additional corrections to conform to the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
