The good news is still there: the US state of New York has just awarded 62-year-old Anthony Broadwater the nice sum of 5.5 million dollars for the injustice he suffered. he wants himself so it has the New York Times reported, with the many money to buy a little house in the countryside and enjoy the rest of his life in peace. No one will begrudge him this belated happiness: a court in Syracuse had convicted him of raping an 18-year-old student, which he allegedly committed in 1981. Broadwater had repeatedly maintained his innocence and voluntarily submitted to polygraph tests several times, but he served 16 years in prison. He was denied early release because he did not want to confess to the crime.
