Central Park Five Settlement

By  | 

New York City, NY - A resolution is reached in one of the most controversial civil rights cases in U.S. history.

The Central Park 5 have reached a settlement with New York City.

The city reached a $40 million dollar settlement with the five men who were wrongfully accused of a brutal 1989 beating and rape of a female jogger in Central Park.

This is roughly the equivalent of $1 million for each of the years the defendants spent in prison.
