As per conducts and laws, Detah Sentence is believed to be the final sentence of a case/hearing. Nib is broken as a sign that no further points would be considered/noted down on this case.

Well i think Death is the worse punishment a man can be given. After signing the death sentence, a judge breaks the nib of the pen because he does not want to reuse the pen as it has signaled the end of a life.
