Richard Paey on 60 Minutes
This Sunday 60 Minutes is expected to air a story about Richard Paey, who is serving a 25-year sentence in a Florida prison as a result of his quest for pain relief. My column on how Paey was convicted of drug trafficking without trafficking in drugs is here; John Tierney and Radley Balko also have written about the case. Paey's wife, Linda, spoke at the Cato Institute last September. The Pain Relief Network, which has been working tirelessly to publicize Paey's case, has various relevant links, including his appeal brief.
