Meet The 94-Yrs-Old Man Who Spent The Longest Time In Prison

What did people who were sentenced to life in prison think when they learned that their sentence would be carried out for the remainder of their lives? Some inmates have been incarcerated for upwards of five decades. Some inmates perished in prison, never having the chance to experience life as a free person. This is the true account of the man who holds the record for being the world's longest-serving prisoner.

At the age of 23, this man was convicted and put to prison. When Francis Clifford Smith was convicted of murder in 1950, he was sentenced to life in prison. He was born in the United States in 1924 and raised there until his death in 1998. He was allegedly detained for the murder of a security guard during a nighttime robbery.

Even after spending most of his adult life behind bars, Francis is still alive. He'll be in prison till the day he dies, according to the rules. He's reportedly 94 years old today, according to news reports. Despite his advanced age, he is still imprisoned and will remain there till he dies. Orsborm Correctional Institution in the United States is where he is being held.

Not only has he been incarcerated for a long time, but so have countless others around the world. They are unable to leave their home, live alone, earn a living, or move about freely. The offense they committed that landed them in prison means their liberty is being restricted. It's never a smart idea to spend time in prison.
