Page 1 of 6

Curious what the longest prison sentences ever given are? The average person probably dreads the idea of spending even one night in a prison cell. But how does a life sentence sound? Well, there are a few moments in legal history where certain perpetrators of the law have received sentences much longer than that. Although a sentence longer than the criminal’s life span is not feasible from a practical point of view, reviewing the longest prison sentences ever given remains an interesting topic to approach.

We have compiled a list of the six longest sentences ever given to a single person, worldwide. Let’s take a look at the countdown.

Length of Sentence: 2 millennia

One of Oklahoma’s most prolific criminals, with a record including everything from rape and robbery to kidnapping and larceny, Darron Bennalford Anderson was handed down a sentence of no less than 2 millennia back in 1944. Upon appealing the court’s decision, Anderson, he received further sentences for each of his crimes. In 1997, he once again appealed the decision and this time had a little more success, as his parole date was set as the year 2744.
