Fake Gluten Free Baker Paul Seelig Appeals 2011 Convictions

Remember the infamous fake Gluten Free Baker Paul Seelig?  If not, get caught up here.  This is the guy who started a fake Gluten Free bakery and then sold regular Gluten filled products as Gluten Free to dozens of folks (including Celiacs) throughout the Raleigh-Durham area back in the late 2009/early 2010 time frame.  In April 2011, he was convicted and sentenced to 9-11 years in prison.  He is currently spending his days at the Lumberton Correctional Institution until 5/14/2020.

For several reasons, he's decided to file for an appeal on his convictions (even though in court during his trial he pleaded guilty and stood there and asked for all of his victims to forgive him).  His submitted Brief to the court is here.  Arguments will be presented to the Court of Appeals on Thursday, November 13th, 2012 at 9:30am.  If you have any interest in this case or were a previous victim, please consider attending this hearing.
