Tyrone Freeman Appeals His Jail Term and Insiders Ask: “Is SEIU Footing the Bill?"

Is Kelly Kramer, one of Freeman's attorneys, smiling for Purple Dollars?

The appeal, filed with the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, will cost beaucoup bucks… and once again has raised a burning and unresolved question:

Who’s paying Freeman's multi-million dollar legal bills?

One thing’s for certain: it ain’t Freeman. 

After all, when Freeman's wife appeared in court earlier this year during Freeman's criminal trial, she was assigned a Public Defender because she couldn’t afford a private attorney to represent her.
