In the Brit Hadashah - Renewed Covenant:

The criteria for death by stoning are not met such without temple, so the Sanhedrin cannot implement. Stoning is death sentence, however at present moment it is not practice. Possible fact that the Torah stoning can only be enforce in the Land of Yisrael and at present moment there is no temple. For death sentence to be carried out in accordance to Torah guidelines, there has to be a Sanhedrin and the Sanhedrin has to be seated in a chamber on the Temple mount to hand down a verdict. Once the Temple fell in 70 CE there was no more death sentence executed by Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin cannot carry out such sentence. Only the Sanhedrin is authorised to pass a death sentence verdict by means of stoning.

However at the time of Yeshua, the Romans took away the authority power of the Sanhedrin to execute death sentence. That is why we can see the trial had to hand over to Pontos Pilate the authority to execute the death sentence.
