Iowan convicted of murder claims his life sentence was served when he died, Login/Join

A man convicted of murder was rushed from the Iowa State Penitentiary to the hospital in 2015, where his heart was restarted five times.

Now he claims his life sentence was fulfilled in his short-lived death, and that he has over-stayed his prison time by four years.

Benjamin Schreiber, found guilty of first-degree murder in 1997 and sentenced to life behind bars without the possibility of parole, was hospitalized in March 2015 after large kidney stones caused him to develop septic poisoning, according to court records.

By the time he arrived at the hospital, he was unconscious, records show.

If he agrees to the required embalming, followed by burial, I say let him have his wish.

Only if he stays dead. They should give him the option...

They should have just honored the DNR order.

Too bad his victims (I'm sure there were plenty more before they finally got him for murder) didn't come back to haunt him, like in the movie Flatliners.

Death is when brain activity ceases, is it not? The heart stopping won't kill the brain for several minutes. As Para alluded to, nice try.

Life sentence is that he is to remain in prison while still alive, yes? He’s still alive, so .....

His definition of death is a little different than everyone else’s.

If they never pronounced, then there is no death certificate.

In (altered) words of Dr. Leonard McCoy:

"He's not dead, Jim."

^^^ What he said. No pronouncement of death by Coroner or MD, you aint legally dead.
Kudos for originality though.

Well, not everyone’s. We still see frequents statements of the, “I died three times on the operating table,” and not only from people trying to get some benefit from dying. But, no, if you had died, you wouldn’t be telling us about it. Dead is dead, and not something we get over.
