APTOPIX Mideast Iran Judiciary
An Iranian officer lashes a man, convicted of rape, at the northeastern city of Sabzevar, Iran, Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013. Rape, like murder and treason, can be punished by the death sentence in Iran, but sometimes judges imposed a sentence of lashes before execution or imprisonment. (AP Photo/Hossein Esmaeli)
