In 1991, Wright was tried in a Somerset County courtroom and convicted under New Jersey’s drug kingpin law.
Wright represented himself at trial and, while serving a Life sentence in prison, he continued to study the law and oversee his own appeal.
Over the next several years, Wright also worked as a prison paralegal and won the freedom and reduced sentences of over 20 inmates, many serving life sentences. Some of his legal arguments made new law that lawyers now argue and courts follow.
