There are nights when Josh Sanchez hears his brother's voice. In those dreams, Marion "Rudy" Sanchez returns home. "I go to sleep thinking about him," Josh said. "Some nights, I go to bed crying for him. I hear him speak in dreams." "I'll be home soon, mijo. I'm proud of you." The dreams are an odd mixture of meditation and motivation. "I have the same dream," Sanchez said. "I pick up the phone and he tells me he'll be home soon. I go outside but he is never there."

An inmate enforcer known at Corcoran State Prison as the "Booty Bandit" testified Monday that his rape of an inmate troublemaker was set up by correctional officers, some of whom laughed at the victim's pleas that his life was in danger.
