TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST...Biblical Punishment: A man will have his tooth broken because he broke his mom's tooth in a fight. 

The man, who lives in Saudi Arabia, will also spend five years in jail, and will receive 2,400 lashes. Those lashes will be given in public.

 The judge in the case said the tooth that is removed needs to be in the exact same position as the one his mother broke during the fight. The man admitted to his crime.

Many Muslim countries still use what some call biblical justice, where the punishment corresponds directly in both "kind and degree" to the crime.

The Bible states, "eye for eye, tooth for tooth; just as he has injured a man, so it shall be inflicted on him." The Koran has it's own version, "a life (is the retribution) for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and for wounds is a retribution."
