Riley Campbell, who is autistic, was assaulted behind a Eugene, Ore., shopping center five years ago by three men. When his battery case finally came to trial, Campbell, 35, overcame his lifelong reticence to deliver powerful evidentiary testimony that resulted in the trio’s conviction.
His story is now featured in a 19-minute film, “Against the Fence: The Riley Campbell Story,” chosen as part of the nationally touring Sprout Film Festival. Riley and his mother just traveled to New York City for the festival as special guests at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
