Marquis Rodriguez is an actor known for portraying Young Raymond Santana in the Netflix’s mini TV series When They See Us. The series is about a real-life unfortunate incident that took place back in 1989 which left 5 black and Hispanic teenagers convicted of a crime they never committed.
Marquis Plays Young Raymond Santana from the Central Park Five
Among the wrongfully convicted five teens Raymond was 14 when he was sent to prison. His mom died while he was serving the sentence and didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye to her.
Korey Wise, the one who served the longest sentence (13-years) out of the 5, wasn’t even at Central Park that fateful night. He followed his best friend Yusef Salaam to the police station and only managed to return 13 years later. He was attacked right as he got to Riker’s Island, and was made to spend the rest of his prison term in solitary confinement.
Yusef Salaam on the other hand spent seven years in prison along with Kevin Richardson, whose relationships with some of his family and friends were never the same again.
The fifth teen, Antron McCray, moved out of New York after returning from the prison and changed his name, in the effort to start over.
