Why is the New York government hiding the name of a woman who admitted that she had falsely accused two men of rape after her false accusation caused them to spend 26 and 11 years in prison?

I recently came across this New York Times article from May of this year.

It says that two innocent men were falsely accused of rape, and were convicted largely based on the testimony of the alleged victim.

One of the innocent men spent 26 years in prison. The other innocent man spent 11 years in prison.

The woman now says that the rape “never happened.”

The New York Times article says that the government of New York has not identified the woman.

Why is the New York government hiding the name of this woman who admitted that she had falsely accused two men of rape after her false accusation caused them to spend 26 and 11 years in prison?

And why hasn’t she been prosecuted for these false accusations?
