Man serving life in prison died and was revived at the hospital. Claims sentence fulfilled.

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

He claims his life sentence was fulfilled by his short-lived death, and he has overstayed 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.

2. I think he may have a case.

Probably can’t afford a lawyer that could win. But with the right representation I think he could win.

7. That was my question.

You have to be able to prove you were dead and to do that you would need a death certificate. Paperwork paperwork paperwork

5. If it's a life sentence, & he's alive, he should be in jail.

6. Did he meet Jesus?

Might work if the judge and jury are evangelicals.

9. Imaginative.

If he came up with that on his own, it's an argument to free him: we could use people with such great imaginations out here in zombie-land. If not his original idea, I want to meet the guy who thought of it.

10. story says nothing about an NDE (near death experience)

However, it appears the medical care is so deficient that he should be released for that reason alone.

Prisons have an obligation to provide health care. If they're not doing it, the prisoner should be set free to seek the best care he can find or afford.
