Mike Smith: Central Park Five Is a PBS & WETA "Must Watch" Doc
Huffington Post - almost 4 years

Later that year, and even though he had been found at the scene of the Meili crime, Matias Reyes was arrested for another rape.

In 2002, the sentences of the youths were finally vacated and the now-men vindicated after they had all served their prison terms. Sarah Burns is his Yale-educated daughter whose book The Central Park Five: A Chronicle of City Wilding deta ...
