The maximum (total) sentence received may be greater than the longest mandatory 10-20-Life sentence imposed for offenders. For example, 154 felons whose longest 10-20-Life mandatory was 10 years received total sentences of life in prison. In many cases, the longer total sentence reflects these felons' more serious criminal histories.
