Offenders who go through the programs are significantly less likely to commit future crimes. The victims and their family members hope to find answers to agonizing questions and the offenders may reach some resolution, too - learning the true consequences of their actions. In the end, everyone's lives are changed forever.

Nancy Dubuc and Laura Fleury serve as the A&E Network executive producers; and Jon Kroll and Caroline R. Maria are the executive producers for CONFRONTING JUSTICE. The program was created by Caroline R. Maria. The co-executive producer is Sydney Levin, and the Producer is Mark Costa.
