Ken Burns Film Examines 1989 Jogger Case

Ken Burns' new movie in theaters is The Central Park Five. Five black and Latino teenagers admitted to the rape and beating of a white jogger and served prison sentences. But a startling confession in 2002 by a convicted murderer and rapist whose DNA was present at the crime scene led a judge to overturn their convictions.
