Central Park 5 Press Conf./City Hall

The Central Park jogger case involved the assault and rape of Trisha Meili, a female jogger in New York City's Central Park, on April 19, 1989. Five juvenile males—four black and one of Hispanic descent—were tried and convicted for the crime and served their sentences fully. The convictions were vacated in 2002 when Matias Reyes, a convicted rapist and murderer serving a life sentence for other crimes, confessed to committing the crime alone and DNA evidence confirmed his involvement in the rape. Senator Bill Perkins,, next up Charles Barron - New York City Council Former Comptroller,, John C. Liu Public Advocate NYC, Latitia James Inez Barron - New York City Council Central Park 5,, Raymond Santana, Yusef Salaam, Keith Richardson & Korey Wise showed up later on.
