Arbitration, Mediation, and Dispute Resolution

Do you believe that Alternative Dispute Resolution should be used in legal disputes for felonies cases?

If referring to felony cases of theft involving monetary amounts in excess of, say ten grand, there must be a guarantee of restitution in place. There is no guarantee to guarantee the individual will pay the amount unless a court order is in place first, to order incarceration for the repayment failure as an incentive or enactment of salary deductions for payback. Involving the courts nullifies the alternative dispute resolution attempt and therefore should not be used.
