624-year sentence for rapist; plus other eye-popping jail terms

An Alabama man has received a 624-year prison sentence for kidnapping, rape and sodomy.

It's not the first time an Alabama judge has handed down a sentence longer than a human's life expectancy.

The longest jail sentence in the U.S. for a single count was issued in Alabama in 1981 when Dudley Wayne Kyzer of Tuscaloosa received 10,000 years for killing his wife, according to the Alabama state website.

He also killed his mother-in-law and a college student, for which he received two additional life sentences.

In Tuesday's sentencing, 25-year-old Mark Anthony Beecham was given 99 years each for six counts -- first-degree kidnapping, two counts of first-degree rape and three counts of first-degree sodomy -- plus 20 years for felony first-degree theft of property and 10 more for felony first-degree bail jumping.

According to the Dothan Eagle newspaper, Beecham testified at the sentencing hearing and said he didn't believe he had received a fair trial. More
