Why do local rapists and felony breakers get more jail time than national murderers and serial killers?

I live in texas and I see that people arrested for attacking people or raping or smaller things tend to get more time than national killers who have killed multple people...

    Not sure that's true. It may be though, but only because more than a few serial killers have spent the rest of their lives in mental hospitals instead of prison. That's not really an upgrade though.

    Not sure where you got that information, but a convicted murderer gets a life sentence unless there are mitigating circumstances. Perhaps you could provide a link.

    Prosecuting rape at the federal level would require special circumstances too.

    I've not seen anything but a life (or death) sentence for a serial killer.
