Linda Fairstein, Central Park 5 prosecutor, resigns from nonprofit boards

339 Views 314 Comments

A former prosecutor in the Central Park Five case, Linda Fairstein, has resigned from at least two nonprofit boards as backlash intensified following the release of the Netflix series "When They See Us," a miniseries that dramatizes the events surrounding the trial. The president of Vassar College posted a letter on its website saying that she had resigned as a Board of Trustees member. "I am told that Ms. Fairstein felt that, given the recent widespread debate over her role in the Central Park case, she believed that her continuing as a Board member would be harmful to Vassar," Elizabeth H. Bradley wrote. The victims-services agency, Safe Horizon, also confirmed Fairstein's resignation. Messages requesting comment from Fairstein were not immediately returned.
