Some states have laws that spell it all out. Still, there will always be some judge who feels sorry for somebody and try to show discretion.
You bring up an interesting and critical point. What if the crime was committed in State A, and after some period of time, the victim(s) move to State B (we don't want to restrict them). Then after completing the jail sentence, the perp decides to move to State B.
And let's say State B doesn't have the tight restrictions of State A. Can the perp avoid the lifelong aspects of his sentence from State A?
The only way to enforce the lifelong restrictions from State A is that part of his sentence is to be required to remain in State A for life.
IANAL so I don't know what happens in such a case, but it sure seems this life-long aspect can get complicated if it's not a federal crime.
