Deterrence and HumiliationNameClassDateProfessorDeterrence and Humiliation Deterrence is a form of punishment that in theory will deter a criminal offender from committing any further criminal offenses. When the criminal justice system first went through major reform through Progressive Era the focus shifted from brutal and cruel punishments to deterring the offender by making them serve prison sentences that would give them time to reflect on their crimes make them think twice about committing further crimes. Another reason deterrence is used is for humiliation. What his means is the offender is made to suffer public humiliation in order to prevent the form engaging in any further criminal behavior. In Ohio the use of humiliation is a form of deterrence used to punish criminal offenders for certain crimes. One crime in particular that result in deterrence by humiliation is the crime of driving while intoxicated. When criminal offenders are found guilty of a DUI in Ohio they are required to drive their vehicles with a yellow tag that clearly states they are guilty of drinking and driving until the suspension of the driving privileges has expired.
