The Longest Sentences People Have Gotten for Their Crimes



Every justice system around the world works in different ways and has different sentences regarding every criminal act. Some countries will only sentence someone who murdered a person to a couple of years in prison while in other countries, the sentences given are so long (we are talking about thousands-of-years long), it’s actually clear that the criminal will not get out of prison alive. These kinds of sentences are so much better than any kind of death penalty, since the criminal will suffer a lot more and for the rest of their life.


1. Dudley Wayne Kyzer


This man was sentenced to two life terms plus 100 centuries after killing his estranged wife, mother-in-law and a college student who happened to stand in his way.

2. Chamoy Thipyaso


This woman was sentenced to 141,078 years in prison after being involved in a pyramid sceme, which resulted in stealing $2,800,000 from over 16,231 people.


3. James Holmes


12 life sentences plus 3,318 years in prison was this man’s sentence after killing 12 people and injuring 70 in a movie theatre in 2012 in Colorado.

4. Ariel Castro


This man kept three girls locked in a basement for 10 years. After being sentenced to 1,000 years in prison he committed suicide.
