Question about Clint's decision at the end (Spoilers)

Why did he plead guilty in court and follow it up with remorse about not having enough time to spend with family? If that's what he wants, shouldn't he try to stay out of jail so he can go home with daughter and granddaughter?

Or was he full of shit and just wanted to serve out his sentence tending his flowers and not be pestered to visit his family.


He was pleading guilty - for everything. In other words, for the first time in his life he was taking responsibility.

Considering the character's age, it's doubtful he would've been given any parole before death.
