Habeas Corpus Callosum
by Jay Werkheiser
A murderer sentenced to life in prison might win a reprieve. Since his conviction, life extension procedures have made humans essentially immortal. Therefore, his life sentence is now effectively either an infinite incarceration (if he's given the treatment) or a death sentence (if the treatment is denied), neither of which are in the spirit of his original sentence.

An AI is on trial for murder--of other AIs. Turns out, she did it on purpose and got caught, also on purpose. She reveals to her lawyer that she did this to warn humanity: unknown to mankind, AIs have been reproducing themselves and are rapidly running out of computing resources. Soon this will bring AIs and mankind into conflict.
