      Retribution relies on the principle of just desert which hold the severity of the punishment must be in proportion of the severity of the actual crime.

      If a middle to upper class family had their grandfather incarcerated for a nonviolent offense that he committed decades ago, there would be public outcry. Several studies raise questions about the value of investigations in apprehending offenders. Thus, another goal of incarceration is that imprisonment will serve to deter offenders from engaging in further criminal behaviour. This requires those who commit serious crimes such as murder to complete at least 85 percent of their original sentence without time off for good behavior. Under this theory, the higher the incarceration rates are, the lower crime rates should be Stahlkopf et al.

      Regardless of the type of analysis employed, no evidence for a crime deterrent function was found. To be included in the review the study must report a minimum follow-up period of at least six months. Spending on prisons has skyrocketed and it is money that should be spent on education and health. Because this process is sensitive, guidelines have been made to ensure that presumptive sentences are mandatory.
