Default Texas Man gets 4,060 years in Prison.

Quote:
WEATHERFORD, Texas (AP) A man was sentenced to more than 4,000 years in prison Wednesday 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, according to the Parker County District Attorney's Office.

"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, of Springtown, 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, the Weatherford Democrat reported in its Wednesday online edition.

"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.

Later Wednesday, some jurors said the case was difficult because of the subject matter.

"We were careful not to make any mistakes in viewing and evaluating the evidence," said juror Dale Lewis.

That is just ridicilous. What are they gonna do, put him in suspended animation just so he can actually serve his full time?

I think they're being nice to the guy.
They're giving him a chance to get out free if he doesn't die. Hey, it's a chance at life again unlike the death sentence or life in prison. :>

I think he might be part cat? Nine lives. . . :O
And wouldn't that punishment be against like one of the 13 Amendments to the Constitution.

It was either 5, 6, 7, or 8. And it says "No excessive bail or punishment." I think. I can't really remember. But the point being one lift sentence is enough, he's not part cat or something... gd.

to answer your question, yes thats a life sentence.

he got 40 life sentence, a life sentence = 100 years, so he got 4,000 years. meaning he had 40 charges brought against him that resulted in a life sentence, plus whatever got him that extra 60.

it's not like the judge went, "your a sick freak, spend 4,00 years in jail". It's more like "for charge (whatever he was brought up with) life in prison, for (whatever charge two was) life in prison...".

So, they're expecting him to die 40 times over?
I mean, "life sentence", by the end of one, you should be dead.

He should be castrated and butt-raped by 10 of the most well-hung prisoners WITHOUT lubricant. Sexually assaulting 3 girls over 2 years? Oh my gosh...
