New York City mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has agreed to settle the case of the Central Park Five, who were wrongly convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in 1989. Ken Burns directed the documentary about the kids who spent more than a decade in prison, and were released after another man confessed. The men filed a lawsuit in 2003 against the city that has yet to be acknowledged. (Photo: D Dipasupil/Getty Images)
