Berenson's Treason Conviction Overturned

Host Renee Montagne talks to reporter Jonathan Miller, who's in Lima, about the decision by a Peruvian military court to overturn the life sentence of Lori Berenson. The 30-year-old New York native was found guilty of treason by the secret tribunal in January 1996 for allegedly helping the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement plan an attack on Peru's Congress.
