Here's Where the Real-Life Cops and Attorneys Featured on 'When They See Us' Are Today

By

The Netflix original series When They See Us tells the real story of a group of five teenagers, known as the Central Park Five, who were wrongfully accused of attacking and brutally raping jogger Trisha Meili. 

Over the course of four episodes, the Ava Duvernay-directed series details how Raymond Santana, 14, Kevin Richardson, 14, Antron McCray, 15, Yusef Salaam, 15, and Korey Wise, 16, were arrested and spent years behind bars not because of DNA evidence, but due to coerced confessions, a racist legal system, and law enforcement officers who just seemingly wanted to solve the crime as quickly as possible.
