Regina v. Kromhout: Novel use of "native sentencing circle"

Jun 2, 1998

A native sentencing circle format was used with a non-native, Caucasian teenager in a vehicular manslaughter case to save him from almost certain incarceration. Instead, following the "circle" the court ordered the young man to speak to high school students about the dangers and consequences of unsafe driving.

* Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. The amount recovered will vary according to the facts of the individual cases.

I first came into contact with Alden Dychtenberg and his highly competent staff after a car accident. Up t that point, almost two years later, I had felt that my problem were being shelved, undervalued, possibly because of my age.

Then my life began to change. Working with these capable, enthusiastic people I received truthfulness, honesty, candor and a unfailing understanding that someone "had my back".

Jamie Elsasser, a feisty , positive young lawyer, along with Alden, went to bat with rapid results. Much effort was expended on my behalf in a mission that took months to complete, ending with satisfaction, relief and much gratitude.

Should I ever again need such help I would not hesitate to call on the Dychtenberg team in perfect trust.
