American comedienne, arrested on 6/27/2001, 3:10 PM, Malibu, on charges of child sexual abuse with a 13-year-old girl on three occasions, May 19, June 5 and June 6, 2001.
Paula was raised in Massachusetts, where she moved with his family as a kid. After dropping out of high
school in Sudbury, she began to pursue a career as a standup comic. Known for wearing roomy suits and a tie, she is prominently involved with GLAAD and the Advocate, a lesbian magazine.
Known for her love of kids, Paula has two foster and three adopted kids, the youngest a nine-month old boy. Her neighbors and friends all attest to how caring and good a mom she is. Upon her arrest, the kids were all taken into protective custody: she was in residence at an alcohol rehab facility.
At a hearing in late August 2001, her friends rallied around to testify for her good heart and solid character, outside of a serious drinking problem. The judge found her not guilty and gave her five years probation. She was released from Alcohol rehab on 12/05/2001 after completing a 180-day sentence.
In a juvenile court hearing 12/11/2002,, the comedian regained full legal custody of her three adopted children, who had been in a foster home.
