Depending on where the conviction occurred the prison sentence could have been a deterrent. For example, in Central London, courts regularly give pickpockets an immediate custodial sentence of 8-10 weeks for a first time offender pleading guilty.

There are also some forms of order where the convicted person agrees to leave the UK and not to return, although it is unusual for these to be combined with a prison term.
