1. What were the contributions of the classical school of criminology? A: The ideas in the classical school revolve around the idea that every person is responsible for his or her behavior, and with this came a book called “Dei delitti et delle pene” which had 9 main points 1. The law should be limited in scope. 2. In the administration of justice, the presumption of innocence should be the guiding factor 3. The criminal law should define in advance both the offenses and their punishments. Thus, there should be a complete written code of criminal law. 4. Punishment should be retributive. 5. The severity of punishment must be limited; it should be proportionate to the crime. 6. The nature of the punishment should correspond with the nature of the offense. 7. There must be certainty of punishment; penalties must be applied with speed and certainty. 8. Punishment should not be used to make an example of the offender for society, nor should the punishment include reformatory measures, since enforced reformation by its very nature is of little use. Moreover, the punishment should be based on the objective criterion of the crime and not varied to suit the personality of the offender. 9. It is better to prevent crimes than to punish them; prevention consists in clear and limited code of laws. 2. Are the terms prison and jail just different names for the same thing?
