Description

This story examined the rape of a gay man in Akron, Ohio by an HIV-positive man. There was DNA evidence against the attacker, and his statements were suspect. The investigation was stalled and riddled with mistakes. Prosecutors admitted that rumors of the victim's flamboyance kept them from pressing charges.
