Why isn't it common for prisoners to pay other prisoners to confess to the crime they were accused of?
If they're already doing life without parole, what have they got to lose?

1. They are NOT prisoners before conviction.
2. Most criminals can't afford it.

Just a confession isn't enough. No judge would accept a guilty plea and confession without other evidence of guilt.

If they are already in for life, how did they commit the crime? Use your head dude.

What have they got to lose? How about a lot of prison privileges, such as yard time, access to TV, restricted visitors, limited (very limited) meal choices, even solitary confinement. Then there are the hourly cell inspections for contraband (including body cavity searches), the round the clock video surveillance, and more.
Committing a felony while in prison, shows that you are a very dangerous person, who can't be trusted to move from a chair to the toilet without detailed adult supervision.

If they're already doing life, what good is money?

Because evidence is needed, even in a confession. It's kind of hard to prove the guy who was serving three life sentences at the time the crime was committed did something else.

What if they were in prison at the time the crime was committed...duh

Wealth people rarely end up in jail, at least compared to poor people
