    I always wonder what would happen if, say, the Highlander got a sentence like this. Would he be able to successfully argue for his release at the completion of his sentence?

    I'll bet fifty bucks that Judge has a teenager or pre-teen daughter.

    They do stuff like this to make sure that the offender will never, ever be eligible for parole.

    Actually, that makes a lot of sense, especially if he's not technically eligible for a life sentence per guidelines.

    Yea it's so he'll never have any chance of being paroled, but it also has to do with the fact that the Supreme Court decided that you can't execute child rapists.

    We were very much looking forward to gutting the bastards in Texas, but this kind of thing was put into the law in case the death penalty was ever outlawed, so they may just be trying to make a big example out of the fact that they are capable of doing this.

    Because really, 2000 years would have probably been enough.

    Good for them. If they can't gut this piece of shit like a fish, at least this will mean he'll rot in prison until he dies.
    Which hopefully won't be too far off. I doubt he'll last long when the other inmates find out why he's in there. :) :thumbs2:

    Exactly, even if he gets time off for good behavior it will never be enough for him to get out.

    Because we aren't for letting child rapists back on the street? I'll stay away from your normal.

    I guess so. The article says he'll be eligble for parole in 3209.

    Still... offing him would be a helluva lot cheaper.

    Holy strawman argument, Batman!

    But yeah, I doubt that anyone is going to get more than 1000 years of credit for good time and completing rehabilitation programs in prison, so I can see how some might consider this to be somewhat excessive. But better safe than sorry I guess; for all we know the man could be a Highlander like in that documentary by the same name.

    As far as the US criminal justice system is concerned, i'm more in favor of locking people up until they die rather then executing them. Not because I believe that these shits have a right to live or anything, but because thier prisons are actually punitive and killing them off just gives them an easy escape from the misery of being locked up for a few decades before they die of thier own accord.

    I'd be in favor of it over here thougth as long as its proven beyond all reasonable doubt, just out of the sheer fact that our prisons are basically hotels with big walls that have no real deterent or punishment value.

    I dunno, you figure in the cost of putting him on death row for a decade or so while all his appeals go through, the cost of said appeals, all that...

    Okay, it still probably doesn't even out. Whatever, the next twelve centuries or so aren't gonna be pleasant for him.

    Man, if he did live through that whole sentence, can you imagine how institutionalized he'd be afterwards? Dude probably wouldn't even want out anymore.

    Only 1201 years untill he's elegible for parole. If, he doesn't screw it up.
