Pope gets 4,000 years

Evidently someone wanted to make sure that the 1330 year sentence recently handed out to a sexual predator wasn't the longest sentence of the month.

SOURCE--- 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.

Overwhelmed, and delighted here.

Honestly, it's about time we ought to stop making deals, and start actually handing out justice to these sexual deviants.
