Norma’s apartment was burglarized.   Entry was made through an unlocked window while victim was at work.   Drawers and closets were ransacked.  Stolen were jewelry, clothing, checkbooks and credit cards.  None of these items were recovered.


The value of the stolen property was around $1,000.   Norma immediately cancelled credit cards and closed the checking account so she suffered no financial loss as to these.


Danny was arrested after forging and cashing several of Norma’s checks.  Because the account had been closed, Norma suffered no loss nor did the bank.  The check cashing company lost a couple of hundred dollars.


Danny confessed to committing the burglary along with 2 companions.  He has pled guilty to residential Burglary and been sentenced to probation.  He is a meth addict and is now in Drug Court.


Danny is a young adult with no previous adult convictions although he has a juvenile history of Disorderly Conduct, Shoplifting, Minor Consuming Alcohol and Drug Paraphernalia.


Yuma County has a Restorative Justice Conferencing program.   Norma and Danny    have chosen to participate.
