Can someone please tell me how long is a life sentence in Texas if you go to prison when you are 29.

Depends on the crime and if he is allowed parole

and to follow MB's comment...if he makes parole, he will be on paper for the rest of his natural life.

i am new...but doesn't life sentence mean life?

yes it does!!

Yes life means life but not necessarily behind bars. They can be approved for parole and as CenTex said they will be on paper or parole the rest of their natural life.

Mandown your husband will be in my prayers and so will you - I know how it feels when they come up, been there done that. You just have to remember that if its denied you have to be there for him, he has to see your love to get him thru it. My husband was denied 2years ago and I was the one that told him. I got there before he got the papers showing denied. In a way it helped us both to deal with it. He knows I love him and I am not going anywhere. I pray you get the answer you are waiting to here and my he come home with God speed.
