If one takes the penal code as an instrument for expressing the moral values and norms of society, interests of the criminal justice system have arguably increasingly been focused on the protection of society rather than the rehabilitation of the offender. Societies search for ways to support and empathise with victims, while morally condemning offenders for their acts, and the general feeling of justice tends to be satisfied only when strict sentences are distributed in serious criminal cases such as sex offenses and assaults.
