Baca had a troubled childhood and was a runaway at the age of thirteen. He was arrested on drug charges and served time in a maximum security prison, where he learned to read and write.. He has since gone on to publish 10 volumes of poetry, a collection of short stories, a novel, a memoir, a children's book, and two collections of stories for adolescents. He has devoted his life to writing and teaching others to overcome conflict in their lives, conducting hundreds of writing workshops in prisons, schools, community centers, libraries, and universities throughout the country.

Mapp v. Ohio, a landmark United States Supreme Court case on the 4th Amendment arising in the Cleveland Area. After the film, Professor Jonathan Witmer-Rich will lead a discussion about the exclusionary rule: what should happen when the police illegally invade someone's privacy, in violation of the Fourth Amendment? He will discuss the history of the exclusionary rule, describe the continued debate about the wisdom of excluding reliable evidence in a criminal trial, and then lead the audience in a discussion of that debate.
*This film is a project of the Leonore Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania in partnership with the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands and it will not be officially released until Constitution Day 2012.
Visit two Constitution Day displays.

Ohio case, is located in the lobby near the entrance of the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Library.
