The three models of the criminal just process are deterrence, retribution, and incapacitation. These are all similar in that they are dealing with how to prevent crime from happening. “Deterrence, incapacitation, and rehabilitation are all arguments that look to the consequences of punishment” (Cliffsnotes.com, n.d., para. 5). The difference between them is the way they go about trying to prevent crime from occurring. With deterrence, the system is trying to stop someone from committing a crime in the first place because they do not want to have the punishment that is required when committing such a crime. For instance, individuals that support the death penalty believe that it is a deterrent for committing heinous crimes, such as murder. With the deterrence theory, the system is trying to prevent any crimes from happening in the first place by setting examples of the sentences given to those that have been convicted of these crimes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
