Fox Claims Central Park Five Were 'Railroaded,' 'Wrongly Convicted'


JACQUI HEINRICH, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Former D.C. detective Ted Williams says the case of the Central Park Five is looming over this investigation. Back in 1989, five black male teens were wrongfully convicted of the assault and rape of a white female jogger in Central Park after making false confessions. Williams says, because this case involves information coming from a 13-year-old suspect, there's additional pressure to get it right.

TED WILLIAMS, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: And I can tell you there's an intense investigation going on, and they're trying to do it right. If you remember the Central Park Five, those young men were --


WILLIAMS: -- exonerated. So now they're trying to get it right up there in New York.
