The Scope of Serious Crime and Preventive Justice

Tom Sorell offers an account of serious crime that goes beyond victimizing crimes committed by individuals against other individuals. This approach extends the well-known framework offered by von Hirsch and Jareborg to include crimes undermining welfare-producing institutions. He then considers how the seriousness of crime justifies preventive measures, including the criminalization of acts preparatory to the commission of serious crime.
