Default Faint Hope Clause & South America

Are you aware that in South America, no matter how bad a crime you have committed, you will have a maximum of a 30 year sentence? Even if you were a serial killer. Consequently, they introduced the faint-hope clause to help lifers. Therefore, if they have good behavior in prison (get educated, do their work, volunteer), and show good character, there is hope for them to get out.
