A wheelchair-bound man who suffered from partial paralysis, chronic pain and multiple sclerosis was raided by masked, gun-wielding SWAT officers and ultimately sentenced to 25 years in prison for possessing a one-month supply of painkillers that he was legitimately prescribed by his physician.
The man, Richard Paey, an Ivy League-educated lawyer, was paralyzed by a severe automobile accident in 1985 near Philadephia, according to a report by CBS 60 Minutes program. The report said Paey’s condition worsened after a botched surgery left him with metal screws in his spine and unrelenting pain.
“I felt like my legs were being dipped into a furnace,” Paey explained. “They were burning, and I couldn’t move them. It’s an intense pain that, over time, will literally drive you to suicide.”
