Maximum prison sentence in Norway is 21 years

…and like in most European countries, there is no death penalty. This means that Anders Behring Breivik (32), the alleged mass murderer who killed nearly 100 people in Norway last Friday will serve a maximum of 21 years in prison and will be released afterwards. He will be 53 years old when he walks out of jail.

With the average life expectancy of 81 years in Norway and great prison conditions, odds are he will walk out healthy and have 30 more years to live free.

A prison room in an average prison in Norway looks like a student dormitory room with metal bars over the window (sometimes without). The room has a proper bed, a working desk and a shower.

Update: Despite 21 years is the maximum prison sentence by Norwegian law, it can be extended if the prisoner is deemed to be of risk to the society. He may as well be kept away as a mentally unstable person in another institution. We’ll know very soon. Avoid Jail By Hiring A DUI Lawyer.
