Man once convicted of daycare rapes sees charges dropped

The man who spent more than 20 years in prison after being convicted of raping five children at a Pittsfield daycare center back in 1985 will not be retried.

The Berkshire County District Attorney announced Tuesday that he will not pursue a case against Bernard Baran.

Baran was convicted of those crimes and sentenced to life in prison, but a superior court judge overturned his conviction in 2006.

Since then, Baranhas been free but monitored with electronic equipment.
