Summary/Abstract: When it comes to social reaction measures towards perpetrators of criminal acts all contemporary states recognize several different types and measures of criminal penalties in their systems. In that way it is possible to accomplish individualization of criminal penalties by type and measure for every perpetrator of a specific criminal act, in accordance with its psychological characteristics, but also level of social threat caused by the degree and intensity of that consequence. Still, in the system of criminal sanctions different types of sanctions that deprive or limit the perpetrators of criminal acts of their constitutional rights, and rights and freedoms recognized by law are the most applied ones. However, that system of sanctions must be at all levels synchronized with relevant European standards.
