Christopher Clugston was convicted of a crime and sent to prison. He was finally released over a decade later because of the weakness of the case against him, but not before he was gang raped and infected with AIDS. Bernard Baran was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit. He was raped 30 times while in prison. The cases of Clugston and Baran, as well as the Central Park Five and others, remind us of the importance of civil rights and due process for those accused of crimes.
