As a rational, business-type practice, the possibility of deterrence has been demonstrated by variations of the risk of detection (Jesilow, 1982). It should be safe to expect that most forms of conscious deviant behavior (those not committed under the influence of alcohol or narcotics and not conducted under emotional stress) will imply a short reflection on the risks of detection. If the risk is considered substantial (a criterion defined individually at different levels) the activity may be restructured (to minimize the risk) or even postponed for a less risky situation.
