Central Park Jogger Case

New evidence suggests that the five men convicted of raping the Central Park jogger in 1989 may have had nothing to do with the crime. Karen Grigsby Bates talks to University of Albany professor Frankie Bailey, and Tim Sullivan, author of Unequal Verdicts: The Central Park Jogger Trials, about the implications of the new evidence for the criminal justice system.
