About Paul Free
Two months before he was arrested, Paul received his BS from San Diego University in Marine Biology. Paul’s stated business at the time of his incarceration was buying commodities in Brazil and selling them in China. He was living in Mexico at the time and was teaching English and in the process of organizing a school that would enable him to teach English and other subjects on a broader scale.

While in prison, Paul has taught GED classes and reading to other inmates. He has been told that his classes have the highest graduation rate in the US Prison System and he also routinely helps inmates with their legal documents and pro se filings. He finds great satisfaction when he has a success in this area.

Before he began living in Mexico from 1989 – 1992 Paul was the manager at the Coronado Play House in Coronado, California.

Paul Free received life without parole for a nonviolent marijuana offense. He was charged and prosecuted for conspiracy and chose to exercise his 6th Amendment Right to Trial. It is not uncommon for defendants who go to trial  to receive the longest sentences based upon the testimony of co-conspirators who enter into plea agreements.

Free’s best hope lies with executive clemency.
