Central Park Five

A New York judge yesterday vacated the convictions of five young men in the rape and beating of the Central Park Jogger in 1989. Guest host Allison Keyes talks about the case with reporter Cindy Rodriguez of member station WNYC, and with Crystal Cuffee, the mother of Kevin Richardson, one of the so-called "Central Park Five."
