The Serial podcast will return with a new episode following Adnan Syed’s conviction being overturned.

Now a judge in Baltimore has overturned the conviction which has freed Syed from prison after 23 years.

A tweet from Serial linking the news said: ‘Sarah [Koenig podcast host] was at the courthouse when Adnan was released a new episode is coming tomorrow morning.’

Syed who was 17 at the time was after Hae’s body was found partially buried in a park in Baltimore.

After the case was featured on Serial 跨際數位行銷 ptt 跨際數位行銷有限公司 a follow-up investigation by the State’s Attorney’s Office was prompted which found that the prosecution failed to notify Syed’s defense attorneys that police had interviewed two other suspects for Lee’s and that neither suspect was ever officially ruled out.

By withholding this information the state may have violated the Brady rule – a Supreme Court precedent which requires prosecutors to turn over any evidence that might be favorable to a defendant.

Prosecutors did not claim that Syed was innocent but that he required a new trial ‘where he is adequately represented and the latest evidence can be presented.’

The State’s Attorney recommended that Syed be released on his own recognizance or on bail.

‘We believe that keeping Mr. Syed detained as we continue to investigate the case with everything that we know now when we do not have confidence in results of the first trial would be unjust’ Maryland State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby stated.
