Central Park Five prosecutor Linda Fairstein steps down amid criticism on 1989 case of five NYC yout



Embattled “Central Park Five” prosecutor Linda Fairstein resigned under fire Tuesday from her positions with Vassar College and the board of directors at the God’s Love We Deliver charity.

“She did step down, and we accepted her resignation today,” said Terrence Meck, chairman of the board at God’s Love. “This is an internal letter only, and we are not sharing its contents.”

Vassar College President Elizabeth Bradley, in a statement to the school community, explained that the massive backlash against Fairstein since the airing of the fictionalized Netflix series “When They See Us” led the lawyer to walk away from the college’s board of trustees.

“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,” said Bradley.
