If a man is 72 and a diabetic with osteoporosis and hypertension does that guarantee he will not be sentenced to die if convicted of six counts of first degree murder?

No There's an aweful lot of law probabilities in this question but I'll answer to the best of my knowledge at least. law.com will probably have some info on a specific answer. Yet from what I know of law is that there is no guarantee of anything. Murder is Murder no matter what and there is now law written anywhere that says a person with a disability or other physical hinderment -cannot- be put to the death penalty. To answer your question. Being 72 and a diabetic with osteoporosis and hypertension will never guarantee a person of not being put to the death sentance. It may sway the jury out of recomending the death penalty. Yet, 6 counts of 1st degree murder is pretty extreme, and I personally doubt any jury would be swayed by any disability the defendant had. Even if the guy is given the death penalty by the courts, the prison will probably just lock him on death-row and let him go. He'll never see freedom again and quite frankly I don't think I would want him to. Most states won't get around to executing someone for being a serial murderer for several years and by then he will probably be dead already.

Sentenced is a term used when someone is convicted of a crime. Sentence stayed means in lieu of serving time, probation was possibly given.

For violating probation you can be sentenced to serve the original sentence for the charge of which you were convicted.

If someone is convicted that means they are found guilty of a crime (by jury or judge). After someone is convicted, they are sentenced, which means the judge (usually, sometimes jury) decides what punishment is appropriate. This can happen quite a while after someone is convicted because the court needs to do a presentencing investigation where the guilty party's age, past criminal record, mental health, etc. can be taken into account.
