Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson,Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, andKorey Wise(known as theCentral Park Five)—were wrongly convicted of the assault and rape ofTrisha Meili, a woman inCentral ParkinManhattan, New York, on April 19, 1989. More than a decade after the attack, while incarcerated for attacking five other women in 1989,serial rapistMatias Reyes confessed to the Meili assault and claimed he was the only actor; DNA evidence confirmed his involvement. The convictions against McCray, Richardson, Salaam, Santana, and Wise were vacated in 2002. From the outset the case was a topic of national interest. Initially, it fueled public discourse about New York City's perceived lawlessness, criminal behavior by youths, and violence toward women. After the exonerations, the case became a prominent example ofracial profiling,discrimination, andinequalityin the legal system and the media. All five defendants sued the City of New York formalicious prosecution,racial discrimination, andemotional distress; the city settled the suit in 2014 for $41 million. Wear this and rep the need for justice and equality for all.
