NPR's Robert Siegel talks to Sue Ingram, a reporter with Radio New Zealand who is covering the trials of seven men on remote Pitcairn Island. The seven, half of the island's adult male population, are all charged with rape and having sex with underage girls between 1964 and 1999. The total population on Pitcairn is just 47.
