Beccaria believed in rights for criminals and their victims, and much of his theories involved crime prevention and appropriate punishments for crimes.
Some rules that Beccaria writes about are that: laws must be set by legislators, legislators cannot judge persons, judges in criminal cases cannot interpret the laws, laws must be clear and in need of no interpretation, offenders must be judge by its peers half of the victim half of the criminal , right of the criminal to refuse some jurors, no secret accusation by government, judges should be impartial searcher of truths and judges should not become part of the treasury so that the do not look to criminals to make money.

No man can be judged a criminal until he be found guilty; nor can society take from him the public protection until it have been proved that he has violated the conditions on which it was granted.
