1 of 5 men exonerated in Central Park jogger case thanks NYC mayor for settling lawsuit

One of five men exonerated in the Central Park jogger case is thanking New York Mayor Bill de Blasio for settling a lawsuit over their 1989 arrests.

Korey Wise spoke briefly Saturday at the Rev. Al Sharpton's Harlem headquarters.

He said, "For the new mayor — yes! Yes!" Supporters cheered.

City Comptroller Scott Stringer said Friday that the city had tentatively settled the lawsuit filed by the five men who were arrested as teens in the notorious attack.

Stringer said the settlement was "in the ballpark" of $40 million.

The five were found guilty in the attack on a female jogger and sentenced to prison.

In 2002, a re-examination of the case pointed to another suspect, Matias Reyes, who admitted his role.

Wise thanked Reyes for confessing.
