Judicial punishment is the execution of the decision by government or court of law that determines an accused person is guilty of a crime.

Judicial refers to a formal act of judgment. Judicial punishment takes many forms and can entail fines, community service, restriction or loss of civic and other rights, confiscation, demotion, imprisonment and other forms of forced detention, or corporal punishment (see also judicial corporal punishment).

Capital punishment (killing) is the most extreme form of punishment as it ends all bodily functions for good (used by a substantial number of countries, ironically including some that declare mere beating inhumane).
