Town manager Adam Chapdelaine released a letter this week giving the public more details on how the town dealt with the case of Lt. Richard Pedrini.

You may have heard of “restorative justice” where, among other things, victims get to meet with the offender to seek some sort of reconciliation. Chapdelaine’s letter comes after some town residents were highly critical of the restorative justice route instead of just firing the police officer outright.

In this exclusive on-camera interview, ACMi’s Jeff Barnd talked with the town manager who laid out his compelling case for deciding on restorative justice.
