Have you ever wondered about people who were sent to life imprisonment, and how they felt when they were told that they are gonna spend the rest of their lives behind bars? Some people have been in prison for more than 5 decades and still counting. Some people died while in prison, they never had the chance to be free in their life.

He was born in 1924 in the United States of America. According to reports, he was arrested for murdering a security guard during a robbery in the night.
Francis has been in prison for the past 71 years of his life, and he’s still alive. He’s meant to serve in prison till he dies. According to reports, he’s 94 years old today.
