The facilitator writes a report describing what happened at the conference and any agreements made, including timeframes. You’ll get a copy of the report as will the judge, the offender (or their lawyer) and anyone else involved in the case, such as the police or probation officer, and court victim advisor.

The facilitator makes sure the judge gets the report before the offender is sentenced. The judge decides whether to include any agreements made at the conference as part of the offender’s sentence.
