  • People have free will to choose criminal or lawful solutions to meet their needs or settle their problems.
  • Crime is attractive when it promises great benefits with little effort.
  • Crime may be controlled by the fear of punishment.
  • Punishment that is (or is perceived to be) severe, certain, and swift will deter criminal behavior. (Siegal, 2010)
