This is a June 25, 1990 file photo of an artist's rendering of the opening statements in the Central Park rape trial made in the State Supreme Court in New York. From left are defendants Yusef Salaam, Antron McCray and Raymond Santana in court, while Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Lederer speaks and Judge Thomas B. Galligan listens from the bench, upper left. Five teenage boys maintained their innocence as they grew up behind bars after being convicted of the rape and beating of the woman who came to be known as the Central Park jogger. Their convictions were eventually tossed out by a judge when new evidence surfaced linking someone else to the crime. But their legal battle goes on: A $250 million federal lawsuit against police and prosecutors has been pending nearly a decade, with no resolution in sight.
