Abstract: The paper is mainly focused on alternative sanctions that are amended in the Spanish criminal law. We think that the Slovak criminal law is not very different in developing alternative sanctions as the Spanish criminal law and this is the main reason why we have entitled the presented paper with the above-mentioned title. The Spanish legal system (and most of legal systems) allows that some sanctions of deprivation of liberty can be suspended or substituted by other sanctions that prevent entry in prison if the offender fulfils the requirements.

Key Words: Criminal Law; Restorative Justice; Retributive Justice; Criminal Code; Alternative Sanctions; Compulsory Labour; House Arrest; Electronic Devices; Spain.
