Death penalty, or capital punishment, is the killing of a person by judicial process as a punishment for an offense. In some countries the death penalty is inflicted for serious offences, such as homicide and high treason; others instead revert to capital punishment not only for homicides, but also for violent crimes, such as robbery and/or rape, up to hate crimes such as apostasy (renunciation and criticism of, or opposition to, one's former religion).
