Summary/Abstract: The education is the basis of any society, helping to its progress and development. To this end, the sentences should cover not only the punishment itself, but also the rehabilitation and social reintegration. In the case of minors, the criminal liability involves more discussion, since it is conditioned by its psycho-physical condition. Minors’ consciousness is emerging and that is why the re-education process has to be a special one. Unlike the current Criminal Code, which provides for the punishment of juvenile and educational measures, the New Penal Code provides for punishing a minor consisting of only educational measures involvingdeprivation or non-deprivation of liberty. Finally, we present some critical remarks, such as the lack of clarity of some provisions of the New Criminal Code or the abundance of attributions of the probation service.
