About George Martorano
SPECIAL UPDATE: As a direct result of the publicity associated with our media campaign for George, famed attorney Roy Black has become involved with George's case. Roy and his legal team recently petitioned the courts in Pennsylvania (where George was convicted) to release George. Although this first attempt failed, there is still hope for an appeal. Please contact the We Believe Group for details about how you can help. George has never had a better shot a freedom. You can make a difference.
True to our origins White Collar Crime Clothing has created a tee shirt intended to promote awareness of George Martorano's ongoing incarceration. George is believed to be serving the longest sentence in US history for a first-time, nonviolent offense. He is currently in his 28th year of a life-without-parole sentence at FCI Coleman in Florida. In that time George has been a model inmate, he has written several books, and he teaches creative writing to his fellow inmates. In honor of George we've called our tee "Coleman Creative Writing."
Says L.T.D., founder of White Collar Crime Clothing, "As a former inmate, I know that there are many inside who have made mistakes in life. But I also know that there are many inmates that have served their time and deserve a second chance. Of those people, I can think of no one more deserving of freedom than George. White Collar Crime Clothing is proud to promote awareness of his case and we hope the popularity of our clothing will lead to his eventual release."
There are several organization dedicated to securing George Martorano's release. The most prominent is The We Believe Group. This site is run by John Flahive. Say's Flahive, "We are grateful to White Collar Crime for helping us shine a light on George's case. George has paid his debt many times over and to keep him locked up any longer is an affront to common decency."
