Iowa inmate claims his life sentence ended when he died momentarily and was revived

EXCERPT:

Benjamin Schreiber is very much alive. But that hasn't stopped him from arguing that he died four years ago.

After the convicted murderer collapsed in his prison cell in 2015, doctors restarted his heart five times. Recovering back at the Iowa State Penitentiary, Schreiber filed a novel legal appeal. Because he died before he was resuscitated, he had technically fulfilled his life sentence, he claimed.

Judges, however, aren't buying it. Dying for a brief amount of time doesn't amount to a get-out-of-jail-free card, the Iowa Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday, saying that the 66-year-old will remain in prison until a medical examiner determines that he is dead for good.

Yeah, it's clever, LOL.

But to paraphrase a famous Hollywood Munchkin, he mustn't be merely dead, he must be really most sincerely dead.

I'm waiting for a large group of celebutards to get together to champion his cause and rally the sheeple to demand his release.
