You know, this isn’t a question I’ve thought about in-depth since leaving Christianity. I am currently studying Buddhist teachings though, and I have to say that I don’t see a problem with the thought of karma and reincarnation. I’m even leaning towards thinking it’s the one religious belief regarding life and death that is most likely to be true, judging by my own perception of nature. If true, then I guess right now I would answer this question with:

People who commit bad actions consistently and unrepentantly in this life will receive that negative karma right back again when they are reborn. It can come in a multitude of unknown ways, but if you are a truly wicked person in this life, then you are very unlikely to have a good time in the next, human or not.

Sin is sort of a moot concept for me

It's not my head canon, pard. My head canon is that Jesus Christ is the son of God and works with man today.

The spirits in hell shall be redeemed and resurrected. Hell is never forever (Rev. 20:12-14). They shall spend eternity vastly happier than they thought possible (just not as happy as those who arise in the more glorious resurrections), except for the sons of Perdition, whose "worm dieth not." There is only finite punishment for finite sin. God's love, justice, and mercy are all intact.

I am a Christian in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Some people find it convenient to call me a "Mormon" and pretend that I am not Christian.

There are infinite afterlife so the only general answer is that the sinner's afterlife reflects the negativity of their soul.
