Is there something you’ve always wanted to ask someone who has been wrongly convicted? This Thursday, October 24 at 7 pm Eastern / 4 pm Pacific, exoneree Raymond Santana will be on Reddit.com to answer your questions as part of their popular “Ask Me Anything” series. Raymond was one of the “Central Park Five” teenagers who was wrongfully convicted of raping a jogger in Central Park in 1989 in a case that drew national attention. The young men were exonerated in 2002 when DNA testing proved that another man was the sole perpetrator.
You can watch a video interview with Raymond here. This online event is a rare opportunity to ask questions of an exoneree about the experience of being wrongfully convicted and the long struggle to win justice. If you have questions for Raymond, we hope you’ll join us tomorrow night. You can find the URL for the conversation once it’s live at innocenceproject.org/SantanaAMA.
