Advanced Criminal Law: Convicting the Innocent
Central Park Five
Five juvenile males—Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Raymond Santana, Yusef Salaam and Kharey Wise—were convicted for rape and served their sentences. Their 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 and DNA evidence confirmed his involvement in the rape.
