Paul House Hearing Tomorrow

On Wednesday, May 28 at 10:00 a.m. at the Federal Courthouse in Nashville, Courtoom 874 on the 8th floor (located at the corner of Broadway and 9th Avenue South just beside the Frist Center for the Visual Arts), a hearing will be held to determine the conditions of Paul House’s release after serving 22 years on Tennessee’s death row for a crime new evidence indicates he did not commit.

On May 7, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with Judge Harry S. Mattice's ruling that the state either re-try House in 180 days or release him. Though the state plans to re-try House, his deteriorating health and his unjust incarceration for over 20 years demands that he should be released to his mother’s care while he awaits retrial.

TCASK needs you to be present in the courtroom to demonstrate to the Tennessee Attorney Generals Office and to Judge Mattice that the citizens of Tennessee want Paul House released.

Because of your prayers and work, we are closer than ever before to getting Paul House the justice he deserves. We need your presence tomorrow to see this journey through.

If you have questions, please call the TCASK office at 615-256-3906 or email us at tcask@tcask.org
