Abstract: The four types of fines are the traditional fines, which is related solely to the offense seriousness; the day fine, which is imposed as proportional to the offender's daily income; the standardized fine, in which the amount is determined according to a special computation; and a corporate fine. Conditional sentences and probation are used when a fine is considered insufficient. Surrender for care involves treatment through social service agencies, treatment of abusers, and mental health services. 3 references
