NEWS & FEATURES

After nearly 20 years in prison, Bernard Baran still insists he was wrongly convicted of raping and molesting five children. Dori Berman, Richard Rainey, and Lindsay Taub offer a follow-up report on some of the evidence submitted last week by his new defense attorneys when they filed a motion to retry his case.
