Kevin Baruxes Posted by Hello

The San Diego Union-Tribune runs a two-day series on Kevin Baruxes, who was sentenced to life for a sexual assault he didn't commit. It's a familiar story: a sympathetic accuser gives dramatic testimony against an less-than-sympathetic defendant (Baruxes, by all accounts, was a racist punk) who doesn't testify on his behalf. After seven years in prison, the woman recanted her story to her husband and Baruxes was freed.
