When you hear things like, XXX got a 431 year prison sentence. What happens when the prisoner dies. Do they take the dead body and stick it in some kind of special corpse prision for the remainder of the term and the release the dead body once the term is done?


Any experts on this matter care to comment?

The purpose is to imprison someone for life even though a "life" sentence isn't available for the crime(s) they committed.

For example, some sadistic nut who raped twenty teenagers over a period of a few years. His only crime is rape, which may carry a maximum sentence of 15 years with possibility of parole after 5 years. But he has twenty counts of rape, so his max sentence is 15 x 20 = 300 years, with a possibility of parole after 5 x 20 = 100 years. It's basically a life sentence without being a life sentence.

The corpse goes in the ground when he's dead . . . like we have room to be housing dead people in any of our prisons

They sentence people that way to make sure they can never get parole.

Today I passed a homeless guy on the highway. He had his bicycle upside down and looked as though he was fixing a flat. The cart connected to the bicycle holding his worldly possessions was also upside down. The sun was bearing down and the temp was most likely 90-95 degrees. This is a "free" man. He may very well go hungry today and sleep under a bridge tonight. Compare his fate to that of the prisioner. The prisioner will have a bed with clean sheets and clothes. He will have three meals per day. He will get medical and dental treatment. He will have color TV with cable, etc. He will get to play basketball, racket ball, etc. each day. That is real punishment!

The years are heaped on so that no matter how good, no matter what programs apply, the person will never get out of jail. RE: You get 50% tiime off for good behavior... that leaves 215.5

Most prisons either have a cemetery on their grounds or they have an agreement with a local cemetery. In most cases, when a person dies, the prison will release the body of the dead inmate to family members for internment. So if you go to prison and then die, you will either be buried in the cemetery on the prison grounds, in a nearby cemetery associated with the prison or your rotten carcass will be turned over to your family for them to bury.
