Life Means Life

A whole life tariff is a mechanism in British law where a prisoner is sentenced to remain in prison until his or her death.  It came into force in 1983 when the British Home Secretary began to set minimum terms that convicted killers had to serve before being considered  for release on life licence. Crimes where whole life tariff are recommended by the law:-
(a) Murder of two or more persons, where each murder involves any of the following:
a substantial degree of premeditation or planning, the abduction of the victim, or sexual or sadistic conduct,
(b) Child murder if involving the abduction of the child or sexual or sadistic motivation.
(c) murder done for the purpose of advancing a political, religious or ideological cause.
(d) Murder by an offender previously convicted of murder,
(e) Other offense if the court considers that the seriousness of the offence (or the combination of the offence and one or more offences associated with it) is exceptionally high.
