These five young Black teen-age boys were accused of raping a young White woman in Central Park in New York City in 1989. They did not do it, but they all were found guilty and sent to prison for 13 years. They were essentially "framed" by the New York City Police Department. New evidence had them exonerated and released. They have won a $41 million settlement from the City of New York.
