ABOUT THE CASE
Dee McMahon is an American teacher who has been wrongfully imprisoned in Shanghai, China since May 2013. In spite of support from the majority of students and adult witnesses, and a total lack of proof of the alleged crime, Dee was accused of abusing children in his kindergarten classroom.
After a murky investigation and a closed trial, with no defense witnesses or evidence allowed, and no cross-examination of police evidence, Dee was sentenced to 12 years in prison. He has maintained his innocence throughout his imprisonment and continues to fight against his false incrimination.
The Free Dee Campaign is a coalition of family, friends, colleagues, and supporters working for justice for David “Dee” McMahon and for Dee’s release from wrongful imprisonment.
