It was a brutal attack that embodied the fears that many people had about New York City in the late '80s, and the incident and its aftermath were trumpeted in headlines across America. As the city prayed for the recovery of the anonymous victim--who has finally come public--the police moved quickly and arrested a group of Harlem teens, five of whom confessed to the crime on video.
But a decade after the CENTRAL PARK JOGGER CASE faded from the headlines, it returned with the startling revelation from Matias Reyes, an imprisoned serial rapist, that he was the sole assailant.
AMERICAN JUSTICE® revisits the controversial case to examine the new evidence and the effect it has had. See how DNA tests, not available at the time of the original crime, supported Reyes's story, and why many legal experts believe that this does not mean that the original convictions are incorrect.
This exhaustive examination includes interviews with the original defendants and their attorneys, a former NYPD detective, a false confession expert, and others closely involved in the case.
