Free Matt Sopron is a website dedicated to supporting the efforts of the Sopron Family to see their son Matt Sopron returned home.

Matt is currently serving a life sentence for a crime he didn’t commit. While Matt is ineligible for parole those directly tied to the crime will be eligible for parole in 2020. This reality makes one question the level of justice at work in our court systems.

Help bring Matt home by getting involved and signing our petition at Change.org!

Our Mission
The Free Matt Sopron mission is to bring together those who’d like to see Matt go free. We want you to read for yourself all the facts of the case that show Matt was framed and is innocent. We want the court and media to know Matt is not alone in his fight for freedom.
Who We Are
