Legal efforts by MacArthur grantee Asistencia Legal por los Derechos Humanos (ASILEGAL) helped ensure the freedom of Sebastian Zuniga Santos and Marcial Zuniga, who were released after ten years of wrongful imprisonment in the State of Guerrero following a trial plagued by violations of due process. ASILEGAL gives legal assistance to indigenous people who often face unfair treatment in the criminal justice system.
