- reformation (rehabilitation) of the convicted;
- deterrence of the convicted and/or potential criminals from committing further crimes in the future;
- disablement (incapacitation) of the convicted from engaging in criminal acts and thereby protecting the society; and
- retribution (revenge) for the crime committed against the victims and the society.

The essence of keeping all (or some) of these purposes together (and very often in a single article) is that judges, in passing sentences after conviction, are required to keep these purposes in mind and that the sentences shall be carried out in a manner that embodies these purposes together.
