The Number 23

Question: Why didn't Walter go to prison after he confessed everything?

Answer: As I recall, at the end, Walter had turned himself in and was awaiting sentencing. He was told the judge may go "easy" on him, likely because of his mental instability, but exactly what easy means, is subject to interpretation.

Factual error: Walter reads from his book he wrote in 1991. He mentions the Oklahoma city bombing. That didn't happen until 1995.
