A summary of the proposed distributive principle includes: primary principle of empirical desert, inconspicuous deviations, deviations to more effectively control crime, deviations to advance interests other than crime control, and method of punishment. Deviations from empirical desert, strategies for avoiding deviations from empirical desert, and the limits of criminal law's distributive principle are discussed.
