Jared Paul, one of many civilians who were unjustly arrested during the Republican National Convention, has finally beat his case.
All charges dropped.
In early September of 2008, Jared Paul had the option to plead guilty and avoid this costly legal battle, but that didn’t jive with him and it didn’t jive with his supporters. An attorney was hired (with the help of money donations via www.ConspiracyToRiot.com) and we fought the case to the very end. It’s been a 5 month ordeal but victory is finally ours!
On Feb 9th, at12:43 pm, our attorney informed us that the dismissal requests
he filed to MN’s Ramsey Court were received and the case has been been
dismissed without prejudice due to insufficient evidence. Go figure.

The Feb 27th show at the Grant in Pawtucket, RI is still going to act as a fundraiser (as we are still in the red) but this show is going to be more of a celebration of our victory than a request for money. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS SUPPORTED OUR CAUSE.
This victory is for all citizens who are fed up with a system that bullies them into submission. There are many innocent people serving unjust time in American prisons and all over the world. Our struggle continues and we plan to keep fighting the tide. Stay aware, stay informed, and stay involved.
We’ve decided to leak a couple songs from the upcoming Prayers for Atheists EP on the new PFA myspace page:
One song that marks this victory in a special way is the “Psalm for St. Paul” track, which has Jared Paul chronicling his arrests at both the DNC as well as the RNC. No, we did not know he would beat his case. Yes, we are beyond thrilled.
CONGRATULATIONS TO JARED PAUL AND THANK YOU AGAIN TO EVERYONE ELSE FOR HELPING OUT!
