Inmate claims he completed life sentence by dying

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

Schreiber was hospitalized after kidney issued caused him to develop septic poisoning.

Should a life sentence end when your heart stops?

In his appeal, Schreiber had also argued that doctors violated his rights by failing to follow his "do not resuscitate" order when they pulled him from the brink of death.

But the 66-year-old claims that episode should be enough to fulfill his life sentence, since his life technically ended before it began again.

In March 2015, Schreiber, who is being held at the Iowa State Penitentiary, was taken to a hospital after having seizures and a high fever, according to his petition.

According to USA Today, "Schreiber filed for post-conviction relief in April 2018, claiming that because he momentarily died at the hospital, he fulfilled his life sentence and should be freed immediately".

A court in the USA has refused to release a convict who argued that he had completed his life sentence when he briefly "died".

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace
I'm not sure on that one. " With Mason he is in the squad, we will give him 24 hours and make a call on that in the morning ". N'Golo Kante returned to the squad against Ajax, and he could replace Jorginho in the Chelsea lineup.

He said he was resuscitated by medical staff against his wishes and that he was sentenced to life without parole, "but not to life plus one day".

Schreiber was convicted of murder in the beating death of a man in 1996, the Daily Iowegian reported.

Schreiber was convicted of first-degree murder in 1997.

And on Wednesday, the Iowa Court of Appeals upheld the lower court's decision.

"We do not find his argument persuasive", Potterfield wrote, adding that the judges found it unlikely the Legislature would have wanted "to set criminal defendants free whenever medical procedures during their incarceration led to their resuscitation by medical professionals".

According to the Register, Schreiber had his heart restarted five times in 2015despite signing a do not resuscitate agreement. Schreiber's lawyer did not respond to requests for comment Friday.
