The five men who were wrongly jailed for raping a Central Park jogger in 1989 are seeking $52 million in additional compensation. The Central Park Five already received $41 million this year in a settlement with New York City after they filed a federal suit. The group is now seeking damages from the state in the Court of Claims, reports the New York Daily News. The five men were all teenagers when they were convicted, and each served between six and 13 years in prison. “When you have a person who has been exonerated of a crime, the city provides no services to transition him back to society. The only thing left is something like this — so you can receive some type of money so you can survive,” said Raymond Santana, who spent nearly seven years behind bars. The first hearing in the case is set for Wednesday.
