A man imprisoned in an Iowa jail argued before a judge that his life sentence was fulfilled after dying for a few seconds and then being revived. However, the judges disagree and assured him that he will remain in prison until a coroner determines that he is dead forever.
The subject identified as Schreiber, 66, has been in prison since 1996 after being convicted of the murder of Jhon Dale Terry, a 39-year-old man who was beaten to death and abandoned in a rural area.
At that time, prosecutors showed that Schreiber conspired with Terry’s girlfriend before beating the man with the wooden handle of a beak, for which he was found guilty and in 1997 he was sentenced to life in prison without parole.RELATED
On March 30, 2015, the prisoner fell unconscious due to intoxication and was taken to an emergency hospital, where doctors had to revive him by injecting him with adrenaline and epinephrine.
Last year, Schreiber requested a review of his sentence, alleging that his sentence ended with his death, although his heart stopped only for a few minutes.
According to information from The Washington Post, the judge of an appeals court said that although the attempt to achieve a legal vacuum was creative, the prisoner’s argument was “unconvincing and without merit,” so Schreiber will remain incarcerated in the Iowa State Penitentiary in rural Lee County until it dies “definitely.”
