Stupidity in dealing with a suspect in custody deserves punishment but is not a crime.

Law: Minnesota Statutes Section 609.195
Definition: The unintentional killing of another through an eminently dangerous act committed with a depraved mind and without regard for human life. Also includes causing another's drug-related death by selling, delivering, or administering a Schedule I or II controlled substance.
Penalty: Up to 25 years in prison and a fine of up to $40,000*

@Arthur_500 Maxine gave him plenty of room to file for a mistrial on appeal.
