Book is about justice system
12:10pm Wednesday 6th March 2013 in News
MALVERN probation officer Richard Rosoman has written a book which he hopes will stimulate debate about the criminal justice system.
Called Having Faith in Criminal Justice, it brings together the author’s knowledge of theology and criminal justice as he cuts to the heart of issues and policy.
“The book is designed to stimulate thought and debate about a subject that is often at the forefront of politics, but about which surprisingly little is written for public consumption,” he said.
Mr Rosoman, who lives in Cowleigh Bank, gained a degree in probation studies from Leicester’s De Montfort University and then worked for Langley House Trust in Wakefield, West Yorkshire in residential drug rehabilitation. He later trained for ministry at Ripon College and has worked in parish ministry and also with the Black Country Urban Industrial Mission.
“At some point, rehabilitation should let the past be the past and focus strongly on the future and potential change,” he said. “It is counterproductive to keep condemning people.”
Published by FastPrint, the book costs £5.50.
