The 1946 Judge presided over Andy Dufresne's murder trial. After Andy was convicted, the judge sentenced him to serve two life sentences, one for each of his victims.

You strike me as a particularly icy and remorseless man, Mr. Dufresne. It chills my blood just to look at you. By the power vested in me by the State of Maine, I hereby order you to serve two life sentences, back to back, one for each of your victims. So be it.
