Abstract

In the popular point of view, prisons are thought of as crime fighting-devices. Hence, in the 18th century, exile, execution and exposing offenders to various forms of corporal punishment were the most common penalties for criminal acts. Although jails were commonplace, imprisonment was viewed as a temporary restriction rather than the prescribed penalty for crime. Retribution was considered as the prime motivation for official punishment.
