A man in Minnesota is being forced by court order to have electroshock therapy. It's being used to treat him for psychotic episodes and it's been going on for weeks. The patient, Ray Sandford, wants the treatment stopped and has a court hearing this week to end the electroshock sessions.

Lorna Benson reports for Minnesota Public Radio.
