  • The Central Park jogger case concerned the assault, rape, and sodomy of Trisha Meili, a female jogger, and attacks on others in New York City's Central Park, on April 19, 1989. The attack on the female jogger left her in a coma for 12 days. Meili was a 28-year-old investment banker at the time. The attacks were, according to The New York Times, "one of the most widely publicized crimes of the 1980s". Five juvenile males—four black and one of Hispanic descent—were tried, variously, for assault, robbery, riot, rape, sexual abuse, and attempted murder. They were convicted of most charges by juries in two separate trials in 1990, and received sentences ranging from five to 15 years. Four of the convictions were appealed; they were affirmed by appellate courts. The defendants spent between six and 13 years in prison. In 2002, Matias Reyes, another Hispanic male who had been a juvenile at the time of the attack, confessed to raping the jogger, and DNA evidence confirmed his involvement in Meili's rape. He also said he committed the rape alone. Reyes at the time of his confession was a convicted serial rapist and murderer, serving a life sentence. He was not prosecuted for raping Meili, because the statute of limitations had passed by the time Reyes confessed. District Attorney Robert Morgenthau suggested to the court that the five men's convictions related to the assault and rape of Meili and to attacks on others to which they had confessed be vacated (a legal position in which the parties are treated as though no trial has taken place) and withdrew the charges. Their convictions were vacated in 2002. The five who had been convicted sued New York City in 2003 for malicious prosecution, racial discrimination, and emotional distress. The city refused to settle the suits for a decade under then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg, because the city's lawyers felt they would win. However, after Bill de Blasio became mayor and supported the settlement, the city settled the case for $41 million in 2014. As of December 2014, the five men were pursuing an additional $52 million in damages from New York State in the New York Court of Claims. (en)
  • Il caso della jogger di Central Park riguardò l'aggressione e lo stupro di Trisha Meili, una jogger, ed altri attacchi a persone a Central Park, New York, il 19 aprile 1989. L'aggressione lasciò la jogger in coma per 12 giorni. La Meilli era all'epoca una promotrice finanziaria di 28 anni. La serie di attacchi di quella notte fu, secondo il The New York Times, "uno dei crimini più ampiamente pubblicizzati degli anni ottanta." Cinque giovani—quattro afroamericani e uno di origine ispanica—furono processati a vario titolo per aggressione, rapina, rivolta, stupro, abuso sessuale e tentato omicidio. Furono condannati per molti crimini dalle giurie in due processi separati nel 1990, e furono condannati a scontare tra i 5 e i 15 anni di carcere. Per quattro condanne fu proposto appello; le condanne furono confermate. Hanno tutti scontato condanne tra i 6 e i 13 anni. Nel 2002, Matias Reyes, un giovane ispanico, confessò di aver stuprato la jogger, e delle impronte genetiche confermarono il suo coinvolgimento. Disse inoltre di aver compiuto lo stupro da solo. Reyes al momento della confessione era uno stupratore seriale ed assassino ed era stato condannato all'ergastolo. Non fu processato per lo stupro della Meili, perché era già intervenuta la prescrizione quando confessò. Il procuratore distrettuale dello stato di New York Robert Morgenthau richiese quindi che le condanne dei cinque fossero revocate e le accuse ritirate. Ciò avvenne nel 2002. I cinque condannati fecero causa alla città di New York nel 2003 per prosecuzione malevola, discriminazione razziale e stress emotivo. La città rifiutò di discutere la causa per un decennio sotto Michael Bloomberg, perché gli avvocati della Città di New York ritenevano che i 5 avrebbero vinto. Tuttavia, dopo che Bill de Blasio divenne sindaco e iniziò a sostenere l'ipotesi di un accordo, la città trovò un accordo per 41 milioni di dollari di risarcimento nel 2014. Al dicembre 2014, i cinque stanno ancora cercando di ottenere ulteriori 52 milioni di dollari di risarcimento. (it)
