Perhaps a strange question, but what happens to the assets of a prisoner who has LWOP or is on a DP sentence, assuming he/she has no wife/husband or children?
It's just like Cali said. Of course, if the POS murdered someone and has anything of value, he'll probably be sued for wrongful death under applicable state law. Plus if you don't qualify for a public defender, legal fees can be a bytch. Especially in a capital case where you'll probably take every opportunity to appeal. But you might have enough dough left over to buy a few cases of Raman noodles from the prison commissary. I do know Phil Spector had quite the estate when he went in to serve his sentence of 19 to life. The victim's mother is suing him for wrongful death, and I imagine the punitive damages will be quite high. The trial is set for next January. Here is the copy of the wrongful death complaint in case you are interested how these things look: www.taylorring.com/Spector-complaint.pdf
"And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs." Revelation 14:19-20.
Thanks for the replies. So these people can continue to make money on the outside, while the state pays for their upkeep. Unfair!
This is a strange concept in America, but in many other countries, like Mexico & South America, prisoners eat pure slop.....worse than bread & water, and not much of it if the prisoners or their families don't ante up the bucks for better grub. This can be a terrific hardship on the prisoners families.
How do you expect a prisoner to 'pay their way' when they live in a cage? Here is a question-Do you think prisoners should be given food,medical care, or educated in anyway? Should they get any credit whatever for performing jobs in/for the prison and community? I expect not....

This thread goes back to 2011.. but, you would be shocked how much money is in inmates accounts. Majority are fine, especially high profile crimes, or good looking dudes................They do wonders from a cage, which most only sleep in by the way.

fuglyville: With 39, 35 and 28 executions for the last 3 years the DP trend is looking pretty good. If it continues this way, we may actually see the DP come to an end in a few years. Fear not, there's always other things to fight for.

Potassium_Pixie: Donald Trump is president. I hope he supports the DP and does whatever he can to keep it alive.

fuglyville: I hope the death penalty system dies peacefully as soon as possible, with or without his consent. The tide is definitely turning against it, but it needs to end - and it should have ended years ago.

whitediamonds: The DP is used criminally against innocents of society far too long & too many. They suffered death, not by peaceful means or methods. The DP needs as already stated to be kept alive.

starbux: @potassium_Pixie Hopefully DT will sign the death warrants for several inmates who have been waiting to get their needle

nykkic: I think I'm still opposed to the DP .. but at the same time I can see why it might be necessary for certain crimes.. I don't have to like it but I've come to respect it
