Are there any laws in the US that provide men who have been accused of rape anonymity pre-conviction? Or is that generally non-existent nationwide? I am asking because I may base a CONA proposal off this, and I need to be sure that this 'issue' hasn't been 'solved' by any kind of legislation.

Well, criminal trials are almost always public affairs, so I doubt it.
There may be gag orders and a closed court room, but I suppose that is on a case by case basis.

So, no, I do not believe there are.
My work here is, finally, done.
