This week on Miranda Warnings defense attorneys J. David Hammond and Melissa Swartz discuss their successful efforts to exonerate Anthony Broadwater who served 16 years in prison for the rape of author Alice Sebold. The attorneys detail how a producer on a film adaptation of Sebold’s book started to doubt Broadwater’s guilt which lead to a reopening of the case.

Hammond and Swartz detail their legal efforts and Broadwater’s reaction to Sebold’s apology.
