Dealing with offending behaviour: Custodial sentencing and recidivism



The effectiveness of punishment- High levels of recidivism suggests is punishment doesn't work, people may avoid being caught rather than avoid punishment; severity of punishment doesn't have no effect for example the death punishment in the USA 

Other benefits of custodial sentencing- Proctection only applies to a small range of criminals for exapmle violent ones, retribution can be achieved through restorative justice and rehabilitation may lack effectiveness because of poor motivation
