    Man dies but lives... did he serve his life sentence?

    Murderer who briefly 'died' in hospital goes to court to claim he's served his life sentence | US News | Sky News

    Man dies but lives... did he serve his life sentence?

    A man serving life for murder claims he has served his sentence because he "died" during a medical emergency.
    A court has denied his request to be released, because if he can make such a plea, he must still be alive.

    It's a silly argument that ignores the plain intent of laws imposing life sentences.

    If you "die" but are brought back, you are once more alive. It's still the you that was sentenced.

    It is an amusing argument but what does the guy have to lose? At least an article was written about it.

    What legal representation did he get?

    I guess a question would be even if he were freed, would he have any rights.
    Social security, no the person with that number died!
    any property he might have owned, no the person who held that title died!
    He would truly be a non person, even his citizenship would be non existent.
    I do not see how he could split the hair, he is ether legally dead, or he is not.

    Hmm... not many go to court to present their own death certificate.

    It reminds me of the legal theory in the movie double jeopardy which was totally wrong

    But did he serve his "life sentence"? He was in prison until he died, after all.

    Yeah, that movie bugged me because of that... I tried explaining the error to a couple who loved it and thought it was so clever... I am not sure that they believed me.
