Benjamin Schreiber was sentenced to life in prison in 1997 after being convicted of first degree murder.
As is known, the subject killed an acquaintance with the handle of a pickaxe. Everyone is in collusion with the victim’s girlfriend. Since then, Benjamin has been serving his life sentence in an Iowa prison.
By 2015 the subject developed kidney stones, which led to septic poisoning. CNN claims that Benjamin fainted in his cell and was taken to a local hospital where he died for several minutes before being revived by a medical team.
So far everything seems like a normal case of a criminal who was about to die, but the case of Benjamin Schreiber is special. Subject claims he has been illegally imprisoned and should be released, Reason? He says that by dying for a few minutes, he has already served life sentence.

The case of benjamin schreiber
Benjamin Schreiber’s life sentence appeal isn’t as absurd as it sounds. In fact, it is a valid plea that was evaluated by the Iowa Court of Appeals.
Judge Amanda Potterfield ruled at the time, “Schreiber is alive, in which case he should remain in prison.”

The judge also affirmed that the state cannot release all those accused of serious crimes every time they have to be resuscitated in a medical procedure.
Indeed, Iowa state law states that a person sentenced to life in prison “must spend the remainder of his natural life in prison, regardless of whether that time expires or what happened before.”
Thus, Benjamin Schreiber will have to spend the rest of his ‘second life’ in prison. Although you retain your right to appeal against the decision of the court.
