Convicted murderer who ‘momentarily died’ claims life sentence has been served

The Iowa Appeals Court has ruled that convicted murderer Benjamin Schreiber will not be released

The Iowa Appeals Court has ruled that convicted murderer Benjamin Schreiber will not be released

The novel legal argument came to light this week when the Court of Appeals of Iowa denied an appeal for inmate Benjamin Schreiber, who has been in prison since he was convicted of murder in 1997.

According to NPR, the judges said Schreiber is "either alive, in which case he must remain in prison, or he is dead, in which case this appeal is moot".

According to the latter-day Lazarus and his lawyers, Schreiber's temporary death meant that he had served out his sentence, which he received for bludgeoning a man with an ax handle in 1996.

Schreiber also said he was revived against his wishes. It's unclear whether Schreiber plans to take the case to a higher court.

He lost consciousness and despite his do-not-resuscitate order and directions from his brother, he was brought back from the brink.

Jonas Brothers release new holiday song ‘Like It’s Christmas’
They teased the track's release on Twitter earlier this week. " Be sure to tune in to ABC on November 24 at 5pm PT. We leaned into the basic seems of Christmas time while providing a new conquer and new sense.

An attorney for Schreiber did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday morning.

The judges found the 66-year-old must spend the rest of his natural life behind bars, even after he was revived.

For the three-judge panel, justice Amanda Potterfield wrote: "We do not believe the legislature intended this provision, which defines the sentences for the most serious class of felonies under Iowa law and imposes its "harshest penalty".to set criminal defendants free whenever medical procedures during their incarceration lead to their resuscitation by medical professionals".

In 2018, Schreiber applied to a state court for release, arguing that he had "momentarily died" at the hospital and therefore fulfilled his life sentence.

He added that Mr Schreiber would still be considered alive for purposes including organ donation, making it "hard to think he should be "dead" for the objective of serving a life sentence".
