NEWARK’S “SOCIAL WORK” COURT TAKES A KINDER, GENTLER APPROACH. Imagine a judge who scolds as if she were your mother; offers help with your problems and applauds your success. She's Victoria Pratt, presiding in Newark's Community Court, sometimes called the "social work court." It's part of what's called "procedural justice, " a new, more creative, more effective way of dealing with low level repeat offenders. Here, there's help with addiction, with housing, with employment - for those who are ready to receive it. A possible way out of crime, without the punishment; a new way of seeing the role of the court - with a whole new kind of judge. Judge for yourself as Due Process goes inside Judge Pratt's courtroom, where human dramas play out every day. In the studio, Judge Pratt and I are joined by Rutgers School of Criminal Justice Prof. Todd Clear, author of "The Punishment Imperative."
