First Guilty Plea from Central Park Attackers

The first of thirty men indicted for attacking women in New York’s Central during the June 11, 2000, Puerto Rican Day parade has pled guilty. Immanuel Nunez, 18, admitted to being a participant in a throng of men who drenched women with water, tore the women’s clothes off and molested them. Nunez, jailed since his arrest on June 16, exchanged his guilty plea for a 6 month sentence, 4 and a half years of probation and 250 hours of community service. Nunez was released after serving four months of his sentence because of good behavior and no prior conviction. Fifty-three women filed complaints about being molested during the parade.
