Elizabeth Lederer, the lead prosecutor in the Central Park Five case is still an assistant prosecutor with the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and an adjunct law professor at Columbia School of Law. Elizabeth Lederer let her prejudice overshadow her judgement and common sense, ultimately prosecuting five Black and Hispanic youths for a crime that due to major discrepancies in the timeline and DNA evidence supporting their innocence, she knew in fact they could not have committed. How can any prosecutor so easily persuadable by her colleagues, and so blatantly biased and ignorant still be aiding in deciding the fate of anyone? I urge the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and Columbia School of Law to terminate her immediately! No one can right her wrongs, but we can ensure that no one else’s life is destroyed at her hands!
