In this sense, we will analyze the law 1/2004, which it is related with gender in the sense of establishing a compulsory alternative rehabilitation programs for men in order to substitute or suspend imprisonment condemn as well as the recent reform of the penal code by 5/2010 law in order to strength the reliability of these programs as a part of the penal system. Due to these facts in 2010 the penitentiary administration developed a framework program for being applied to prisoners who were in prisons and men who were serving alternative sentences.
