NPR’s News and Notes aired a segment on prison rape a few weeks ago. Farai Chideya, the host, talked with a former prison inmate, Keith DeBlasio, and Lovisa Stannow, Executive Director of the advocacy group Stop Prisoner Rape.
Stannow mentioned a report released by Human Rights Watch that “estimates that 22 percent of male inmates in the Unites States have been raped at least once during their incarceration.”
