Iowa inmate's claim he briefly died won't end life sentence



DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Appeals Court has ruled against a convicted killer who says he "died" during a medical emergency and thus fulfilled his life sentence.


Wapello County court records say Benjamin Schreiber has been serving the life term since being convicted in 1997 of beating a man to death.


Schreiber says his heart stopped five times on March 30, 2015, at a hospital where he'd been taken from the Iowa State Penitentiary in Fort Madison.


Schreiber filed for release in April 2018.


A district judge found little merit in Schreiber's argument, saying his filing confirmed he was still among the living.

The appeals court affirmed that ruling Wednesday, saying: "Schreiber is either alive, in which case he must remain in prison, or he is dead, in which case this appeal is moot."

The guy he beat to death is still ... dead.

Life sentence means you spend the rest of your life in prison. If you died, then come back to life, you must fulfill the life sentence. Nice try.
He should have pretended to still be dead and sneak out of the morgue if he wasn't a dumbass.

This is right up there with the deathrow inmates that tried to fight they fall under some abortion laws and shouldn't be executed. Also, why wouldn't you have a "do not resuscitate" signed if you're serving a life sentence and died from natural causes? The worst was over with.

This was one of many dubious subplots in a Torchwood miniseries. A pedo murderer gets legal injection at the same time everyone on Earth become immortal, so they release him because the death sentence was technically carried out, or something.
That mini series started out interesting and got really dull and boring by the end.

According to this other article, he did:

He also argued that his rights were violated by doctors saving his life in the first place, as he had a “do not resuscitate order” in effect.

Unless your brain peters out, you're not technically dead. Even if you're in suspended animation or frozen, if your brain is capable of being thawed out and coming back online, you're not technically dead.

Welp. Guess they'll have to kill him again. A lethal injection ought to solve this problem in no time...
