Once again, Berkman’s cancer care was delayed, mistreated and ignored in the prison health care system. As he would tell a CBS News interviewer on “60 Minutes,” if he hadn’t been a doctor, he would have died because again and again only his own knowledge and actions saved him. Sure that he would perish if their trial went on as planned, his comrades agreed to plead guilty and to take harsher punishments so that he would be severed from the case. Sent to a federal prison near the Mayo Clinic, Berkman finally healed and was released in July 1992.
