Men exonerated in Central Park jogger case speak

Raymond Santana, left, Yusef Salaam and Kevin Richardson, three of the five men wrongfully convicted of raping a woman in Central Park in 1989, speak at a press conference at City Hall after it was announced that the men, known as the "Central Park Five," had settled with New York City for approximately $40 million on Friday. All five men spent time in jail, until their convictions were overturned in 2002 after being proven innocent.
