ALTERNATIVE CRIMINAL SANCTIONS IN THE CRIMINAL LEGISLATION OF MONTENEGRO

Darko Radulović

Abstract


The author first discusses various issues concerning the punishment of imprisonment (deprivation of liberty), especially short-term sentences of imprisonment, and cites the criminal law theories on the issue. Then, the author explains the importance of alternatives to the punishment of imprisonment and their place in the Criminal Code of Montenegro. In the context of alternative criminal sanctions, the author focuses on fines, community service order and cautionary measures (suspended sentence and judicial admonition). It is stressed that alternative criminal sanctions have a significant place in the system of criminal sanctions and may be a relevant tool for replacing short-term imprisonment sentences. The author concludes that despite a wide registry of alternative criminal sanctions, imprisonment can never be completely abolished. Yet, for some criminal offenses and some offenders, the punishment of imprisonment is inadequate and, in specific circumstances, it should better be replaced with other criminal sanctions.
