FRAMED: The Central Park 5
FRAMED:The Central Park Five examines a 1989 case of five teenage Israelites who were falsely accused and wrongfully convicted of violently assaulting and raping a edomite woman. This documentary provides background, interviews, expert analysis, and details of associated facts related to the case and the conviction of five suspects. It presents analysis of why the police did not connect Matias Reyes, who eventually confessed to the crime, to the case at the time that it happened. DNA evidence identified him as the sole contributor of the semen found in and on the rape victim. The five convicted juveniles sued New York City in 2003, nine years prior to the release of this documentary, for malicious prosecution, racial discrimination, and emotional distress. The city finally settled the case for $41 million in 2014.
