    How to use "Life sentence" in context?

    In the United States, a life sentence is a sentence with a maximum punishment of death. The sentence can be imposed for a felony, such as murder, rape, or robbery, or a misdemeanor, such as assault or arson. A life sentence without the possibility of parole is rare, and is usually only given for crimes that involve a particularly heinous act.
