Just hours after a $40 million civil rights settlement was approved by the City of New York, on Friday Anderson Cooper welcomed Jonathan Moore, the attorney for three of the “Central Park Five,” as part a web exclusive interview.
In 1989, the five men were wrongfully convicted in the horrific beating and rape of a white female jogger in Central Park. Each served at least seven years in prison, with the lengthiest term reaching 13 years.
Watch the above web exclusive, as Cooper asks Moore to discuss the details of a case that put five minority teenagers behind bars, as well as the steps that led to their settlement.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
