General Purposes of Punishment

Chapter

Abstract

In determining the type and measure of punishment to be imposed on the offender, the court is guided by the general purposes of punishment. The court is expected to assess and evaluate each case in this context, based on two types of considerations: data about the offense (in rem) and the about the offender (in personam). These considerations are discussed in Chap. 3.
