Central Park 5 Prosecutor Calls Netflix Series A "Fabrication"

In a new op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Linda Fairstein says Ava DuVernay's dramatization of the Central Park Five case is "full of distortions and falsehoods."

Fairstein says the mini-series falsely portrays her as "bigot" and "evil mastermind," who was "unethically engineering the police investigation." She claims the film's "most egregious falsehoods" are that the teens were being held without access to food, their parents and the bathroom.

She still denies that the teens were coerced into confessing, and stands by her belief they should not have been completely exonerated.
