If you are serving a life sentence in jail and you die but you are revived is your sentence over?

I would wonder if doctors, especially prison doctors, would try very hard to revive a lifer. Prison cells are at a premium nowadays.

Absolutely. Job skill training, education access, free gym membership, three hots and a cot.

Who says crime doesn't pay?

. .laundry services, mobile libraries. . It's no wonder so many are of a hopelessly institutionalized mentality even when in-between bids, or years after a sentence completion. @painter, that sort of thing isn't as common as television would have you believe. Though I'm sure the crime rate dropped dramatically during the first couple seasons of 'Oz', lol.

We'll see what happens when life sentenced inmate is revived.

Most likely you won't be revived very easily... And no, you'd probably still have to be there.

No because you are in for life. If you are revived then you are still alive.

I think you should NOT be revived. Isn't that the point?

The legal definition of death is when all brain activity stops not when the heart stops beating and no one is ever "revived" from brain death.

You don't technically die .. until your brain ceases to function and can not be 'revived.

Well that happened to someone once and he got out.
But i believe that they changed the rules because of him.
I'm not totally sure though.

With the type of execution methods in use, I'm not certain they would rather be alive if revived afterward. The design is such, as not to leave much room for error. I think 'thorough' is a good description.

"Life" sentences are really just 50 year sentences, as that used to be a typical lifespan; so no, you wouldn't be released because of that.

Well, I think yes. Since the person already accomplished the sentence. However, if the person did somnething wrong again, then he would be in trouble again. Like anyone else that gets out of prison. Gby

No one has died and come back to life.
People have only been NEAR death and revived.
Supposed near death visions of tunnels, lights and loved ones is not the result of a person dying. It is the brain being stressed and deprived of oxygen, resulting in hallucinations. Near death visions and experiences can be duplicated in the lab and studied without risk of the person dying.
But no the sentence would not change.

If that were true could you imagine how fast the number of murders and suicides in the nations prisons would sky rocket?!
