Why is Mexico persecuting gay lawyer Jaime López Vela?

A Mexican lawyer and gay activist is facing 14 months in prison for defending a victim of homophobia. Jaime López Vela was the first to be married in Mexico City after the city approved same-sex marriage in 2010 and is planning to run to be a member of Parliament on the list of the PRD.
