They say innocent until proven guilty. With no evidence of Mr. Koh's involvement in Paul's death, we hope that justice will be served and Mr. Koh will be given his freedom. When the family ran out of funds to further support attorneys this defense team heard of this case and has been working pro-bono after reviewing this case. They flew in from other states and are staying here in Illinois in temporary housing away from their families to save this man.
