An Irishman Abroad

The Wrongful Conviction Of Anthony Broadwater (Plus The Ghislaine Maxwell Trial Continues) - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone (Mini Pod)

December 10, 2021
If the Ghislaine Maxwell trial is proof of what money can let you get away with, the injustice that Anthony Broadwater suffered is an example of what can happen at the other end of the spectrum. He served 16 years for a sex crime he didn’t commit, was branded a sex offender and struggled to integrate back into normal life. As Marion details in today’s episode, a bizarre twist of fate and the help of director Timothy Mucciante changed his life this week. We also get the latest from the New York courtroom where Maxwell begins her defence today. Finally there’s a round up of all the news from across the pond including the defeat of Biden’s vaccine mandate and what that means.
