When They See Us
When They See Us is based on events of the 1989 Central Park jogger case and explores the lives of the five suspects who were prosecuted on charges related to the sexual assault of a female victim, and of their families. The five juvenile males of colour, the protagonists of the series: Kevin Richardson (Asante Blackk), Antron McCray (Caleel Harris), Yusef Salaam (Ethan Herisse), Korey Wise (Jharrel Jerome), and Raymond Santana (Marquis Rodriguez), were divided by the prosecutor into two groups for trial. Each youth was convicted by juries of various charges related to the assault; four were convicted of rape. They were sentenced to maximum terms for juveniles and the one adult, Korey Wise, who was 16 at the time of the crime. He had been held in adult facilities and served his time in adult prison.
After the assailant was identified in 2002 by confession, DNA evidence, and other evidence in an investigation by the DA's office, he requested that the court vacate the convictions of the five men (a legal position in which the parties are treated as though no trial has taken place). By that time, all the men had served their sentences. The state withdrew all charges against them from the 1989 case and removed them from the sex offender registry.
They filed a suit against the city in 2003 for wrongful conviction and were awarded a settlement in 2014. They also filed a suit against the state, and received a settlement in 2016. (The latter settlement was not covered in the miniseries.)
