Let me help put the pieces together ~ You are not alone
A prisoner was sentenced to life without parole for killing another man with an axe handle. While in prison he developed kidney stones so large that they caused urine to bleed into his body. He was taken to the hospital and admitted for septic poisoning. While in the hospital he "died" five times but was successfully resuscitated every time. Several years after being released from the hospital he filed a motion with the court asking to be released from prison (essentially parole). The court denied the motion and the prisoner took it to the Court of Appeals. His argument was that since he was sentenced to a life term, and that since he had "died" five times in the hospital and was resuscitated against his wishes, he had effectively completed his life sentence and was now a free man. Not bad, eh? And the prisoner came up with this argument all on his own. No attorney. The Court of Appeals did not agree. They said that the prisoner was either alive, and needed to serve his term, or he was dead and the issue was moot. True story.
