Question about English (US)

What does " redemption " mean in the following sentence ?
" And so to go back to that original mistake or crime, and try to undo it, there might be some redemption in that."
I picked it up from this article ; http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/potential-revive...
And l looked it up in my dictionary, but it didn't really make sense to me.
I hope you can give me an easy-to-understand explanation.
