Kerry Max Cook was raped for 13 years while in prison; that DNA testing eventually proved he was innocent is almost incidental. In this program, ABC News anchor Ted Koppel reports on prison rape, a rampant phenomenon in American correctional facilities and a violation of civil rights that much of the public sloughs off as part of criminal justice. Interviews with Mr. Cook and other former prisoners reveal how, with the threat of AIDS, a prison sentence can mean a death sentence. Mr. Koppel discusses the issue with a panel of guests including Donna Brorby, lead counsel in a class action suit filed by Texas inmates, and former prison officials Ted Conover and Michael McLaughlin, both of whom have written books about their experiences.
