If someone gets put to death from a crime they committed , are they considered forgiven if they magically came back alive?
If a doctor or someone declares them dead, but hours later or how ever much time it takes for one to come back to life or a possible error while being diagnosed. Will they be free from crime?

depends .. i think sometimes people receive multiple death penalties or life sentences .. .. if you only got one though yeah, i would presume if you were reanimated you already served your sentence ..

Will they be free from crime? No - everyone is always at risk from crime.
Will he be freed of further responsibilies for his crime(s)? Depends.
Chances are he will NOT be executed again. That would be considered "cruel and unusual punishment." His sentence may be commuted to "life without parole" OR his debt to society might in such extreme circumstances be considered "paid" and he could be set free.
It will all depend upon the state, Its laws, the circumstances of his original crime and how well his lawyer can argue before the courts.

If they survive an execution lawyers have argued they shouldn't get it twice so they make sure it's done right. If you got the electric chair you can go home if you survive the blasts so they charge it so much to ensure surviving is impossible.

Long ago a man was hanged, declared dead and he came alive later. His judge let him off with a warning to get out of the territory and not come back.
