Longest Prison Sentences

Longest Prison Sentences - The longest jail sentence ever passed in the United States was a whopping 10,000 years for a triple murder. In Alabama, Dudley Wayne Kyzer was jailed for 10,000 years for the 1981 murder of his wife. He was also sentenced to two life terms for murdering his mother-in-law and a college student.

Not quite as long, but still very long and certain to insure the defendant never got out of prison was the 1994 Oklahoma rapist, Darron Bennalford Anderson, who received a 2,200-year jail sentence. Worse yet for him, when he appealed his conviction he go no mercy. He was convicted yet again and re-sentenced to more than 90 more centuries in jail. Specifically, he was give 4,000 years each for rape and sodomy he committed, 1,750 years for kidnapping, 1,000 years for burglary and robbery, and 500 years for grand larceny. That gives new meaning to the phrase "throw the book at him." He seems to have gotten a whole legal library thrown at him. But, Anderson got somewhat of a break when, in 1997 an appeals court dismissed one of the charges and eliminated 500 years from his sentence. What will his release date be, just in case you're worried - the year 12,744.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
