Saudi man sentenced to receive 2,080 lashes during his 13-year prison sentence for raping his daughter

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - An official Saudi newspaper says a man convicted of raping his daughter has been sentenced to receive 2,080 lashes over the course of a 13-year prison term. The court in the holy city of Mecca found the man guilty of raping his teenage daughter for seven years while under the influence of drugs. The Okaz newspaper reported on Saturday that the man will receive the lashes in stages throughout his prison sentence. The man's name was not published. Saudi religious police say the girl's uncle tipped them off to the crime. Lashing is one of the penalties available to the clerics who serve as judges in Saudi Arabia and issue rulings according to the kingdom's strict interpretation of Islamic law.
