Revelations that led to Broadwater’s exoneration came after Executive Producer Timothy Mucciante hired private investigator Dan Myers after he noticed the ‘inconsistencies’ in Sebold’s story. Mucciante was fired after he pushed back on a suggestion to cast the rapist as a white man and not a black man.
‘I started poking around and trying to figure out what really happened here,’ Mucciante told The Associated Press earlier this week.
The process of exoneration began in 2019 after Sebold signed a deal to turn Lucky into a movie.
It’s not exactly clear what happened next but it led to the case returning to court in New York on Monday, and to Onondaga County DA William Fitzpatrick admitting: ‘This should never have happened.’
Mucciante found the man Sebold accused Anthony Broadwater, 61, 올해 초, living in a derelict apartment where there was tarp over the windows in Syracuse with his wife.
Author Alice Sebold, 59, (사진) was seen for the first time since the exoneration on Wednesday. Her literary career took off after she published Lucky in 1999 – the same year the man she accused of rape, 앤서니 브로드워터, 61, was released from prison
브로드워터 (pictured middle) was originally not identified by Sebold in a police lineup, but was later identified in court. It was only when a cop gave Broadwater’s name because he had been in the area at the time that he was roped into the investigation
Broadwater’s case was brought back up after Executive Producer Timothy Mucciante (사진) found ‘inconsistencies’ in Sebold’s story while working on the film. He hired a private investigator – who now claims he may know the real rapist – to fill in the holes. Mucciante was fired from Lucky after suggesting they cast a white man as the rapist instead of a black man
Broadwater spent 16 years behind bars for the 1981 rape that was the center point of Sebold’s 1999 회상록, which launched her career.
She wrote in the memoir how she was raped in a tunnel by a black man when she was a 19-year-old first-year student at Syracuse University in 1981. The book sold over 1million copies.
Broadwater was convicted in 1982 after Sebold, 지금 58, identified him as her rapist in court.
It was only when a cop gave Broadwater’s name because he had been in the area at the time that he was roped into the investigation. In a police line-up, she picked the man standing next to him. But when Broadwater was tried in court, Sebold did pick him.
The other piece of evidence that convicted him was hair analysis – but the technique used has long been considered unreliable by the Department of Justice.

Broadwater was released from prison in 1999, the year the book came out. He lived a quiet life afterward, working as a trash hauler and marrying but refusing to have children because he didn’t want them to have to live with the ‘stigma’ of his rape conviction. He said he was treated as a pariah because he was on the sex offenders’ registry.
Even after he married a woman who believed in his innocence, Broadwater never wanted to have children.
'우리는 때때로 아이들에 대해 큰 논쟁을 벌였습니다., 나는 그녀에게 절대 할 수 없다고 말했다, 아이들이 낙인 찍힌 채로 이 세상에 오게 놔두지 마세요.,’ 그는 말했다.
'내 두 손에, 나는 내가 그들의 집과 저녁 식사를 축복하도록 허락한 사람들을 셀 수 있습니다., 그리고 난 지나치지 않아 10. That’s very traumatic to me.’
Broadwater remained on New York’s sex offender registry after finishing his prison term in 1999.
Sebold’s career, 그동안, soared. 에 2002, she published The Lovely Bones – another story based around child kidnap and rape. It sold over 5million copies in America alone, grossing $60million in sales, and was turned into a blockbuster Hollywood movie in 2009 주연 시얼샤 로넌, Stanley Tucci and Mark Wahlberg.
Broadwater broke down in tears as the conviction was expunged and he is now asking for an apology from Sebold, who is yet to comment.
‘I just hope and pray that maybe Ms. Sebold will come forward and say, “야, I made a grave mistake,” and give me an apology. I sympathize with her, but she was wrong.’
Broadwater was also stunned to learn that Sebold had sold over 1million copies of Lucky, and gone on to make millions of dollars through The Lovely Bones.
인 럭키, Sebold wrote of being raped as a first-year student at Syracuse in May 1981.
Sebold detailed the assault in her 1999 회상록, 운이 좋은 – her first of three books – which was in the process of being adapted as a film. The fate of the film adaptation following Broadwater’s exoneration is currently unknown. She is also known for the Lovely Bones, which got a film adaptation in 2009 주연 시얼샤 로넌, Stanley Tucci and Mark Wahlberg
Sebold는 Lucky에서 그녀가 대학생이었을 때 Syracuse의 공원에서 한 남자에게 뒤에서 어떻게 공격을 당했는지 썼습니다. 1981. 그녀는 그가 그녀를 강간한 후 놓아준 방법을 여러 페이지에 걸쳐 그래픽으로 자세히 설명합니다., 그녀에게 그녀는 '좋은 여자’ 그리고 그가 한 일에 대해 사과한다.. 이 책은 100만 부 이상 팔렸고 그녀의 경력을 추진했습니다.
‘This is what I remember. My lips were cut. I bit down on them when he grabbed me from behind and covered my mouth. He said these words: “I’ll kill you if you scream.” I remained motionless. “Do you understand? If you scream you’re dead.”
‘I nodded my head. My arms were pinned to my sides by his right arm wrapped around me and my mouth was covered with his left.’
She goes on to describe the rape in graphic detail, how she had to talk to the rapist to encourage him, telling him he was a ‘good man’ and how she wished it to be over.
She wrote how he then apologized in tears once the attack was over, and told her she was a ‘good girl’.
Sebold describes running back to her dorm, confiding in her friends that she was just ‘beaten and raped’ in the park.
‘My face smashed in, cuts across my nose and lip, a tear along my cheek. My hair was matted with leaves. My clothes were inside out and bloodied. My eyes were glazed,’ 그녀가 말했다.
몇 개월 뒤, she said she spotted a black man in the street and thought it was him.

‘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. ‘”야, 소녀,” 그는 말했다. “Don’t I know you from somewhere?”‘
She said she didn’t respond: ‘I looked directly at him.
‘Knew his face had been the face over me in the tunnel.’
Sebold went to the police, but she didn’t know the man’s name and an initial sweep of the area failed to locate him. An officer suggested the man in the street must have been Broadwater, who had supposedly been seen in the area. Sebold gave Broadwater the pseudonym Gregory Madison in her book.
After Broadwater was arrested, 그러나, 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, 우리 사이에 벽이 없다면, he would call me by name and then kill me.’
Sebold wrote in her memoir that Broadwater and the man next to him looked similar and that moments after she made her choice, it dawned on her that she had picked the wrong man.
She later identified Broadwater in court.
그는 유죄 판결을 받았다. 1982 based largely on her identification of him and because of evidence provided by an expert in microscopic hair analysis that had tied Broadwater to the crime. That type of analysis has since been deemed junk science by the Department of Justice.
‘Sprinkle some junk science onto a faulty identification, and it’s the perfect recipe for a wrongful conviction,’ Broadwater’s attorney, David Hammond, told the Post-Standard.
In their motion to vacate the conviction, the defense attorneys Hammond and Swartz argued that the case relied solely on Sebold’s identification of Broadwater in the courtroom and a now-discredited method of hair analysis.

They also said that prosecutorial misconduct was a factor during the police lineup because a lawyer had falsely claimed to Sebold that Broadwater and the man standing next to him were friends who looked alike and had purposely appeared together to trick her.
The attorneys said this false claim had tainted Sebold’s later testimony.
Mucciante hired a private investigator earlier this year, who put him in touch with J. David Hammond, of Syracuse-based CDH Law, who brought in fellow defense lawyer Melissa Swartz, of Cambareri & Brenneck.
Hammond and Swartz credited Fitzpatrick for taking a personal interest in the case and understanding that scientific advances have cast doubt on the use of hair analysis, the only type of forensic evidence that was produced at Broadwater’s trial to link him to Sebold’s rape.
