How to get a maximum sentence
Local newpaper reports the case of a fellow.... he'd been sentenced to a 97 year term, at age 16, for offenses including robbery and forcible rape. Given the length of the sentence, I'd guess that a long list of robberies and rapes were involved.
This time he grabbed a female prison guard, held her with a homemade knife, demanded transfer to a Montana prison. He then demanded sex and, upon her declining, pawed her a lot. They presented him with papers transferring him to a Montana prison, and he released her. Then he was of course sent to maximum security here (I've taken a deposition in the max. security unit ... it is indeed max security).
He was charged in connection with this latest fray, and told the judge (1) he wasn't sorry at all; (2) the prison guard's sexuality was definitely lacking ; (3) he spends all of his time in prison thinking up how to commit crimes more successfully in the future.
He of course got the max -- 28 years consecutive to his 97. He may not be able to serve them all, but will have to do his best.
