    Default Iranian court upholds stoning death sentence for woman convicted of adultery

    Newspaper: Iranian court upholds stoning death sentence for woman convicted of adultery - Los Angeles Times

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) _ Iran's Supreme Court upheld a stoning death sentence for a woman convicted of adultery in the southern city of Shiraz, an independent newspaper reported Saturday.

    The daily Etemad Melli, or National Confidence, reported that the court also upheld another death sentence, this one by hanging, against the woman, who was also convicted of killing her husband with the help of a male accomplice.



    The man was sentenced to 15 years in prison after he was convicted of being an accomplice in the murder. He was also sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery, but was not given the death penalty because he was married.

    Judiciary officials were not immediately available for comment. It was not known when the slaying took place or when the two were convicted.

    While the ruling is final, Iran's judiciary chief or the country's supreme leader are authorized to stop death sentences from being carried out.


    Under Iran's Islamic laws, adultery is the only capital offense punishable by stoning. A man is usually buried up to his waist, while a woman is buried up to her neck. Those carrying out the verdict then throw stones until the condemned dies.

    In July, Iran stoned a man convicted of adultery to death.

    Stoning was widely imposed in the early years after Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution, but it has seldom been applied in recent years, though the government rarely confirms when it carries out stoning sentences.

    Reformist legislators have demanded an end to death by stoning as a punishment for adultery, but opposition from hard-line clerics has sidelined their efforts.

    You are a complete and utter moron if you commit adultery in Iran.

    I know a lot of innocent people are probably falsely convicted, but I am just saying......

    As for the 100 lashes....I just don't understand how someone can tolerate that pain.

    Depending on how sadistic they are feeling, the lashes may be carried out over a period of time. This also includes if the person on the receiving end passes out - in some cases when this happens they stop until the person can be brought to conciousness again and then they continue.
