In both cases, courts capped the imprisonment period at 50 years in accordance with Thai law.

If the max imprisonment period is 50 years what's the point of any sentencing longer than that??

He'll be free by the time he reaches 405 years old!  Surely he should no longer be a danger to anyone by then!

Why not just give a life sentence with no possibility of parole? 

It makes a mockery of the justice system, but do we really expect anything different.

The best justice system the rich can buy.

As they already have something called a death sentence and life in prison and that is not working. Then one would assume that this vill only be a deterrent if the person in question would manage to live 374 years.

Actually any sentence over 50 years is pointless and purely symbolic as it is capped to a max of 50 years. However with the offender already 31 yo odds are he will die in prison...hopefully!

Due to the listed reporters I find this story lacking credibility.

But check out the BBC documentary on Iraq sex trafficking by Imams...

Iraq has nothing to do with this story. Perhaps you can post on the Iraqi Visa Forum. Focus.

You seem to be quite interested in child trafficking stories. I guess everyone needs a hobby.

In theory ...

 

"Why sentence someone to hundreds or even thousands of years of incarceration when a simple “life without parole” would have the same effect? Sentencing laws vary across the world, but in the United States, the reason people get ordered to serve exceptional amounts of prison time is to acknowledge multiple crimes committed by the same person.

“Each count represents a victim,” says Rob McCallum, Public Information Officer for the Colorado Judicial Branch. McCallum is referring to the sentence handed down to James Eagan Holmes. In July 2012, Holmes opened fire inside an Aurora, Colorado movie theater, killing 12 people and injuring a further 70. Holmes was tried for two counts of murder for every person he killed. (In Colorado, you can be charged with two kinds of first-degree murder: murder “after deliberation,” and murder “with extreme indifference.” Due to the nature of his attack, Holmes was found guilty of both.) In July 2015, Holmes received 12 life sentences, and an additional 3,318 years for other, related crimes. "

A court in Thailand's southern province of Phang Nga sentenced him to 374 years in jail for his crimes and ordered him to pay 800,000 Thai baht ($26,000) in compensation to each of the five victims, according to court documents provided to the Thomson Reuters Foundation by the Court of Justice.

374 years for the accumulated crimes is fine, capped to 50 years is acceptable as long as parole is ruled out... but 800,000 baht to each of the 5 victims (4 million baht), I'd like to know how that's going to be achieved?
