Wrongful imprisonment - Justice denied

                         A jogger was raped
                   in central park years ago
                  some youths were accused
                 And with no  DNA evidence
         they were wrongly imprisoned

                    Kevin Richards was
          among those convicted for this
                crime, spending years  in
            prison ,but was later freed
       when they caught the real rapist

    Sadly thesee things do happened and those lost year are never reclaimed. So glad the perpetrator was caught so at least there was exoneration for the others. Satisfying to read.
