Robert Morgenthau, 99

Former Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau spent his over three decade career prosecuting for the city of New York. From mob bosses to media moguls to hardened criminals, Morgenthau was no stranger to high-profile cases; including trying the “Central Park 5.” His legacy and reputation for fairness live on as prosecutor Adam Schiff on the long-running TV series, “Law & Order.”
