A Thai trafficker was sentenced to a record 374 years in jail for child trafficking

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

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!

Who said he's getting out?

sentence will be capped at 50 years in accordance with the law so he will be 81 if he lasts that long.

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

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

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

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?

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

Because like big multiple exhaust pipes connected to nothing they 'look good' 😂
