Hell and Repentance

In Rhetoric class, we were asked a hypothetical question: "If someone in hell truly repented, would they be freed?"

Obviously, we all believe in the eternality of hell, and none of us are saying that it would be possible.  But hypothetically, were a person in hell to truly repent, yes, they would be freed.  Hell is not an eternal punishment for a lifetime of sins, but an eternal punishment for an eternity of sins.  And it is what is desired by those who go there.
