OUTAGAMIE COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - Outagamie County’s justice system uses many methods to try to rehabilitate offenders. One seemingly simple method found effective is saying sorry, especially when it comes to younger offenders.

“[In] juvenile cases, the focus is on rehabilitation,” said Assistant District Attorney Alex Johnson.

Johnson handles just about all of the juvenile cases in Outagamie County.

“I’d say between 60 and 70 percent of juvenile cases involve some aspect of an apology letter writing,” said Johnson.

Court ordered apology letters are typically issued in lower-impact cases: shop lifting, vandalism, simple assault, and similar offenses.

“It varies a lot from case to case depending on, really down to the identity of the individual juvenile whether we think this kid is going to benefit from this activity,” said Johnson.

“That’s a decision the social worker makes as a recommendation to court,” said Youth and Family Services Supervisor Scott Kornish.
