This series will span from 1989 to 2014 focusing on the Central Park jogger case where Anthony McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise were convicted of assault and rape of investment banker Trisha Meili in Central Park. These five juveniles were convicted twice before their sentences were vacated in 2002 when the real perpetrator confessed to the crimes. The Central Park five were exonerated, reaching a settlement with the city of New York.
