Restorative justice

Here is a Salina Journal article reporting that criminal threat charges were dismissed after the defendant and victim met and resolved the matter, apparently to the satisfaction of the victims. I just thought this might be noteworthy because you don't see much press about these kinds of dispositions. It made me curious about whether this type of disposition is happening all the time or whether it's pretty rare?
