Crime and punishment

Following piccolo's post about Saddam's trial I've been thinking about Quebec and the world's judicial system. Today will reading the news I've found this: 38,000-year jail term sought. I'm wondering what is the point of a jail term that is more 478 time larger then the life expectancy in Spain. I'm for longer sentences for crime, but seriously their are limits, you could go for say twice the life expectancy of the population (to account for increase in life expectancy and just random luck of people living longer then other) but farther then that is just plain silly.
