Description

The Post-Dispatch looked at prisoners in Missouri and Illinois who had been paroled in the last decade after originally receiving long prison terms -- some in excess of 100 years. Many of those were sentenced before laws imposing mandatory minimum prison terms, and the luckiest served a small fraction of their sentences. No one in Missouri did more than 36 years, including those who were sentenced to multiple, consecutive life terms.
