Kevin Richardson (in blue) hugs fellow wrongly convicted "Central Park Five" member Raymond Santana before a news conference to announce a payout in the case at City Hall in New York June 27, 2014. New York City's chief fiscal officer on Thursday signed off on a settlement that would end the decade-long civil rights lawsuit brought by five men wrongfully convicted of raping a jogger in Central Park in 1989. The size of the settlement has not been publicly disclosed but a person familiar with the matter previously told Reuters it is approximately $40 million. The figure would appear to make it the largest wrongful conviction settlement in New York history. REUTERS/Carlo Allegri (UNITED STATES - Tags: CRIME LAW SOCIETY POLITICS) less
