Man is cleared of 1981 rape of award-winning author Alice Sebold after spending 16 years in jail

A man who spent 16 years in jail for the rape of award-winning author Alice Sebold has been exonerated after a producer working on a film of the writer’s memoir spotted glaring inconsistencies.

Anthony Broadwater, 61, broke down in tears this week when a judge cleared him of the rape which was the basis of Alice Sebold’s 1999 bestseller, Lucky.

The memoir launched Alice’s career and, three years later, she had a hit with novel The Lovely Bones — also about rape.

After he was cleared of rape, Mr Broadwater said: “I just hope and pray that maybe Ms Sebold will come forward and say, ‘Hey, I made a grave mistake’ and give me an apology. I sympathise with her, but she was wrong.”

Mr Broadwater was just 20 and had recently returned home after serving with the marines when he was accused of raping Ms Sebold in May 1981.

Sebold, 58, wrote in Lucky of being raped as a first-year student at Syracuse University, New York, in May 1981. She said she spotted a black man in the street months later that she was sure was her attacker.

“He was smiling as he approached. He recognized me. It was a stroll in the park to him; he had met an acquaintance on the street,” wrote Sebold.

“‘Hey, girl,’ he said. ‘Don’t I know you from somewhere?'”

She said she didn’t respond, adding: “I looked directly at him. Knew his face had been the face over me in the tunnel.”

Sebold went to police, but she didn’t know the man’s name and an initial sweep of the area failed to find him. An officer suggested the man in the street must have been Broadwater, who had supposedly been seen in the area.

Sebold

After Broadwater was arrested, Sebold failed to identify him in a police lineup, picking a different man as her attacker because “the expression in his eyes told me that if we were alone, if there were no wall between us, he would call me by name and then kill me”.

But on the witness stand, Sebold identified Broadwater as her rapist, and an expert said microscopic hair analysis had tied Broadwater to the crime – a method which is now discredited.

Anthony Broadwater (second from the right) was jailed for the rape despite Alice Sebold selecting the man on the far right in this police line-up 

He was found guilty after Ms Sebold identified him in court — even though she had picked another man in a police line-up — and on the evidence of microscopic hair samples.

The hair analysis used is now seen as “junk science” by the US Department of Justice.

Mr Broadwater was released from jail in 1999 and was living a very squalid existence. He had remained on New York’s sex offender registry even after finishing his prison term in 1999, working as a trash hauler and handyman in the years after his release.

Last year, when the novel Lucky was being filmed for a Netflix movie, executive producer Tim Mucciante became suspicious when the script’s first draft differed so much from the book.

His doubts were not about Sebold’s assault, but about the trial “which didn’t hang together”, he told the New York Times.

He was later dropped from the project and decided to hire a private investigator, Dan Myers, to look at the case.

Mr Myers, who spent 20 years working for the Onondaga County sheriff’s office, also became convinced of Mr Broadwater’s innocence and recommended J David Hammond as his defence attorney.

Mr Hammond told CNN that he and a colleague listened to the transcript of the trial and found “serious legal issues”, prompting them to file a motion to have the conviction overturned.

At Onondaga County Supreme Court, the prosecution of Broadwater was ruled unjust.

District Attorney William Fitzpatrick said on Monday, Nov. 22, 2021, he was “not going to sully this proceeding by saying, ‘I’m sorry’.”

“That doesn’t cut it… This should never have happened,” he added.

Broadwater spent his life insisting he is innocent and tried five times to get the conviction overturned before Monday’s decision.

“I never, ever, ever thought I would see the day that I would be exonerated,” he said.

“When he spoke to me about the wrong that was done to me, I couldn’t help but cry.

“The relief that a district attorney of that magnitude would side with me in this case, it’s so profound, I don’t know what to say.”

Earlier this week, Broadwater told how the conviction destroyed his job prospects and his relationships with family and friends.

“On my two hands, I can count the people that allowed me to grace their homes and dinners, and I don’t get past 10,” he told the New York Times.

“That’s very traumatic to me.”

Although he married a woman who believed in his innocence, Mr Broadwater said he decided against having children because he didn’t want his conviction to ruin their lives.

“We had a big argument sometimes about kids, and I told her I could never, ever allow kids to come into this world with a stigma on my back,” he said.

There’s no reason APC won’t win in 2023, the mood in the country is that Buhari is doing well – Gov. Uzodinma

There's no reason APC won?t win in 2023 Buhari is performing well - Uzodinma

Governor Hope Uzodinma has said there is no reason the All Progressives Congress won’t record a big win in the 2023 general election following the present administration’s ‘good performance’. 

Addressing state house correspondents on Tuesday December 7 after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, the Imo state Governor pointed out that the APC has also witnessed a significant increase in its membership in recent times.

Uzodinma also claimed that the “mood of the country is that the president is doing very well.” He said; 

“What is the prevailing situation that will make APC not win? Is it that you don’t know that 22 states in the country belong to APC?

“Is it that you don’t know that out of the 774 local government areas in the country, that the APC is controlling the majority? Have you not seen the number of people decamping into the APC?

“The mood of the country is that the president is doing very well given the peculiarity of the times when insecurity has taken over the globe, where COVID-19 has ravaged every place in the world from one variant to another variant, yet we are able to come out from recession.

“So, I’m very confident. I’m a proud member of the APC and I think we’ll do our best to ensure that the confidence reposed in the party by Nigerians is not betrayed.”

Uzodimma who was the chairman of the APC campaign council for the Anambra election, also said the decision to challenge the victory of Chukwuma Soludo in the Anambra governorship election will be determined by the leadership of the ruling party and its candidate, Andy Uba.

He added; 

“Andy Uba’s going to court or not going to court has nothing to do with Mr. President.

“The same electoral act that allows INEC to declare results of an election, also allows aggrieved candidates to seek for redress in court, if they so desire. But every other thing will be the decision taken by the candidate and the party.”

Commenting on his visit to the President, Uzodinma said; 

“The prominent among the issues is just the increasing insecurity in the south-east. I know that despite the activities of the bandits and unknown gunmen, recall that the correctional facility in Owerri was broken into and over 1,836 inmates were released.

“Since that time, they’ve been on a rampage, committing all sorts of crimes and there is a need for us to really clean up the state.

“We asked for support with additional manpower and also, I asked for some kind of funding to support the security situation in Imo state and Mr President graciously approved.”

Deontay Wilder makes fresh retirement comments after Tyson Fury trilogy defeat

Deontay Wilder has suggested he’s considering retirement from boxing following defeat to Tyson Fury in their trilogy bout.

Fury returned from retirement to face the Bronze Bomber, who was undefeated prior to facing the Manchester fighter, with the first contest ending in a controversial draw.

The Gypsy King later secured WBC heavyweight belt following his victory in their first rematch before making it back-to-back wins in October when he won the trilogy bout in Las Vegas.

That leaves Fury as the only man to defeat Wilder during his career. 

 Wilder has now  hinted that he could hang up his gloves in order to pursue other endeavors.

“It’s mixed feelings because ultimately I have accomplished all my goals in this sport. I told my daughter when she was one-year-old that I’d be a champion and I’d be able to support her beyond her belief,” he told Kevin Hart on an episode of Cold As Balls on the Laugh Out Loud Network.

“I’ve done that. There’s a lot of things that I’ve accomplished that I feel I have to prove to anyone because I’ve already proven [myself].

“Should I push forward? Should I give it a go one more time? Or should I just retire and focus on the other things that I already have, other things that I want to get into?”

Wilder remarkably won a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics despite being ranked 284th on the list of heavyweight fighters at the competition.  He held the WBC heavyweight title for a five-year stint from 2015 to 2020 and remarkably knocked out every opponent he ever faced prior to his three clashes with Fury.

“So, it was, later on, we heard the Pastor and his wife had gone to the State Police Command to report his mentally ill daughter’s act. I even heard the girl had once matcheted her father’s head.”

Watch Alex Baldwin angrily confront a reporter with umbrella after he’s asked ‘did you really not pull the trigger’ (Video)

Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin was filmed rushing towards a reporter holding an umbrella as he was questioned outside film maker, Woody Allen’s townhouse in New York.

 New York Post journalist, Jon Levine, confronted Alec Baldwin over his latest claims in his first sit-down interview since he accidentally killed Halyna Hutchins.

Baldwin claimed that he didn’t pull the trigger and fire the shot that killed Hutchins, despite police saying he did so. 

The encounter, filmed outside Allen’s Upper East Side home on Monday night, December 6, began with 63 year-old Baldwin’s wife Hilaria, 37, scolding the reporter while brandishing her phone’s camera towards him.

‘Mr. Baldwin, I have to ask you, what brings you to New York City,’ asked Jon Levine, sidestepping Baldwin’s wife to film the actor .

‘I asked you to leave,’ Hilaria snapped. 

When Levine asked who lived at the property, an umbrella wielding Baldwin turned on his heels and sprang toward the reporter. 

‘You’re not allowed to photograph onto someone’s private home,’ Baldwin shouted, gesturing with the umbrella gripped tightly in his hand.

Hilaria held her husband, holding Baldwin back as he repeated the statement before the actor turned back toward the door. 

‘This is not… this is public property,’ Levine repeated, regaining his composure. 

‘Go away, stop it,’ Hilaria said before Baldwin and his entered back into the home.

‘Did you really not pull the trigger? Do you believe it went off without you pulling the trigger? Was it a malfunction?’ Levine asked from the sidewalk as the door closed.

This comes after Baldwin tearfully maintained that he didn’t pull the trigger and that the gun just ‘went off’ while in his hands on the set of the movie in New Mexico on October 21, killing Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.

‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud,’ he said in an interview with ABC. 

‘Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who it is, but it’s not me.’

‘She’s getting me to position the gun – everything is at her direction. I draw the gun, to her marker. I’m not shooting to the camera lens, I’m shooting just off. In her direction. This was a completely incidental shot, that may not have ended up in the film.’

Baldwin says he cocked the gun, and was discussing with Hutchins how it looked on camera. 

‘I’m just showing. I go, ‘How ’bout that? Does that work? You see that? Do you see that?’  And then she goes, “Yeah, that’s good.”

‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud. They don’t have their earplugs in. 

 ‘No one was – the gun was supposed to be empty. I was told I was handed an empty gun. If they were cosmetic rounds, nothing with a charge at all, a flash round, nothing. 

‘She goes down, I thought to myself, “Did she faint?” The notion that there was a live round in that gun did not dawn on me ’till probably 45 minutes to an hour later.’

He added: ‘Well, she’s laying there and I go, “Did she hit by wadding? Was there a blank?” Sometimes those blank rounds have a wadding inside that packs, it’s like a cloth that packs the gunpowder in. Sometimes wadding comes out, it can hit people, and it could feel like a little bit of a poke. 

Baldwin and his wife deleted their Twitter accounts over the weekend as they received huge criticism after the interview with many saying old guns like the one Baldwin used must be pulled by the trigger and hammer before they can shoot.

‘She’s getting me to position the gun – everything is at her direction. I draw the gun, to her marker. I’m not shooting to the camera lens, I’m shooting just off. In her direction. This was a completely incidental shot, that may not have ended up in the film.’ Baldwin said in the controversial interview .

‘I never pulled the trigger. No, no, no. You would never do that.’

Chris Cuomo loses severance pay and book deal after being fired by CNN

Chris Cuomo loses severance pay and book deal after being fired by CNN

Chris Cuomo has lost his book deal and severance pay after he was fired by CNN  for his involvement with his brother Andrew Cuomo’s sexual misconduct scandal. 

According to the Daily Beast, the publishing company HarperCollins has just announced that they will no longer be publishing Cuomo’s upcoming book Deep Denial, which was slated to release in the fall of 2022. A spokesperson simply said, “We do not intend to publish the book.”

CNN released a statement on Saturday morning announcing Cuomo’s termination, citing his involvement in Andrew Cuomo’s defense against his sexual misconduct charges.

“Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense.”

“We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately. While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate.” CNN said in a statement on Saturday

Cuomo also released a statement reflecting on his time with the company and what he plans to do next.

“The way my time ended at CNN was hard. While I have a thick skin, I also have a family, for whom the past week has been extraordinarily difficult. So right now, I have to take a step back and focus on what comes next,” Chris Cuomo said, per the Hollywood Reporter. “I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from SiriusXM throughout my time there.”
