Longest ever prison terms?
Reading in the paper today about 54 year old David Lee Robinson sentenced to 1210 years jail plus 22 consecutive life terms (yes you read that correctly) by a Los Angeles court.
Robinson was jailed after 19 counts of second-degree robbery and three counts of attempted robbery after netting $A87,000 (hardly makes it worthwhile doesn't it?). This isn't the first time he has been locked up after being released for an earlier hold-up spree.
1210 years? Is that the longest ever jail term ever handed down or have there been longer?
