On March 23, 2007, yoga teacher Paul Cortez was sentenced to 25 years to life for killing his girlfriend. Now, friends, family and others have created The Paul Cortez Defense Fund in hopes to raise $75,000 for legal representation during the appeals process. Yoga Journal received a letter from yoga teacher Glenn Tucker and mind-body wellness expert Wendy Hilsen-Bernard, which reads: "The blatant injustice of this situation in stark contrast to the beauty of this pure-hearted yogi has galvanized us to take action on his behalf."
