Contamination that closed Huntington Beach for more than two months last summer might have been cut short if a county task force had used some key tests earlier, a panel of experts concluded Wednesday. The panel of microbiologists, oceanographers and environmentalists concluded a three-day review of the beach closure and subsequent investigation as part of a program sponsored by USC's Sea Grant Institutional Program for environmental studies.

April 13, 1986 | Week in Review stories were compiled by Times staff writers Steve Emmons and Mark I. Pinsky.
A man who served 3 1/2 years in prison for a rape he did not commit helped authorities gather evidence against the five men who did, and last week all five pleaded guilty. David J. Navarro, 25, of Santa Fe Springs was convicted of the 1981 gang rape of a woman at Huntington Beach State Park on the basis of the victim's testimony. Navarro denied that he had participated. Last year the 4th District Court of Appeal found that the identification was weak and that corroborating evidence was lacking.

David Cadena, 22, and Anthony Ramirez, 26, were sentenced to 18 years, while Gregory Franco, 26, was given 16 years. David Navarro, 25, was convicted after the victim and her boyfriend identified him. The couple were at Huntington Beach State Park when seven young men beat the boyfriend senseless and repeatedly raped the woman.

Chris Corbo, a lifeguard at Laguna Beach, where an estimated 25,000 beach-goers spent the day, agreed. "It was one of our bigger days," he said.
