Not quite. Most of the DP appeals are trying to turn the sentence into life, and due to the final nature of the punishment are somewhat more liberally granted.Originally Posted by [b
LWOP prisoners get far fewer appeals. The cost of a LWOP prisoner, including all legal fees, is far less than that of a DP prisoner.
Honestly, the only true motive for the DP is revenge. And that should not be the basis of rule of law.
