The Third Death Sentence

I have no other way to explain it other than to surmise that it must have overlapped with the second one, ie, that two death sentences had been imposed at the same time.

Recall in The Second Death Sentence that my grandfather both fell asleep on guard duty AND lost his rifle after having not slept in a week. As my grandfather noted, "The penalty for sleeping on guard was the same as that for, losing one's rifle: death. About my only comfort was they couldn't kill me twice.”

I guess this is comparable to what today judges intend when they sentence someone to 'three consecutive life terms.'
