    Thumbs up He's eligible for parole...in year 3209. Sentenced to 4000+ years in jail!

    Well, if we can't give them the death penalty, we'll give them 4060 years in prison, instead. It does bother me that we have to do things like this. I will never understand how somebody can get a 'life sentence' and be eligible for parole, ever. I wish more people understood that a life sentence can mean less than 15 years in prison.

    Texas pedophile sentenced to 4,000 years in jail | Metro.co.uk
    A man has been sentenced to more than 4,000 years in prison for sexually assaulting three teenage girls over two years.

    A day after finding James Kevin Pope guilty, jurors sentenced him to 40 life prison terms - one for each sex assault conviction - and 20 years for each of the three sexual performance of a child convictions.

    At the request of prosecutors, state District Judge Graham Quisenberry ordered Pope to serve the sentences consecutively, adding up to 4,060 years.

    He will be eligible for parole in the year 3209.

    "We believe it was a just result," prosecutor Robert DuBoise said, adding that he was "overwhelmed" with the judge's decision to stack the sentences.

    Pope, 43, abused the girls for nearly two years. It came to authorities' attention earlier this year after Pope made several inappropriate comments to a friend, who notified Child Protective Services.

    During the trial, the teens testified about the abuse, and their sexually explicit photographs were shown as evidence.

    But Rick Alley, Pope's defense lawyer, told jurors in closing arguments that the victims were incapable of understanding what happened.

    "If it was as traumatic as they indicate, they would be able to give you (specific dates and times of the incidents). Simply because it's shocking doesn't make it true," Alley said. During the sentencing phase of the trial, a U.S. Secret Service agent testified that while examining Pope's home computer, he found more than 200 images of child porn.

    So here's my problem, since he is going to be away for that long, unless general pop gets to him first, why not put him down?

    Does this really make sense to keep someone around getting PHD and watching ESPN for 2,000 years on our dime?

    I wish we could have some medical breakthrough so he could serve at least a thousand years or so of his sentence.

    As long as it would not be cryogenic, I would go for that.

    I think the judge is making a statement in light of the recent Supreme Court decision that jerks like this cannot be executed. Hence 4000 years in jail. I only wish I could donate a bullet.

    But when he finally gets released and he's 4,103 years old, he'll probable just do it again!

    The death penalty stops repeat offenders!

    The thing is, he'll probably die sooner if he's released to the general population, and we won't have to pay the lawyers to fight his appeal.
