    depends on the country. in usa u dont get death in many states. u get death for treason - not loyal to usa.

    in europe, no death penalty at all. in south east asia, india u get death for various crimes. robbery no death unless u murder someone in the course of the robbery. Rape is death in China but not sure if in other countries. rape - get 9 to 20 years again, depending on severity.

    decision to charge is up to the prosecution. police gather evidence and present to the judiciary and they decide. watch the program - Law & Order - so far the nearest to real life. and L&O UK - u can see different styles of prosecution and evidence.

    sometimes the president / governor or head of state can change death to life imprisonment. in UK and various commonwealth countries - its usually 14 years. in some- u die in prison.

    in china - many offences have death as the country is so large and its important to keep people in line and the law must be respected.
