The correctional system doesn't punish people the court system does that of the criminals.

Women like silent men. They make good listeners and bed partners.

The courts determine guilt or innocence and then a sentence is rendered on the verdict. The punishment theoretically should fit the crime, but most often it does not. Pedophiles and murderers often get off with lighter sentences than money launderers and small time drug offenders.
