Serial’s Adnan Syed’s Conviction Reinstated

A few years back, the “Serial” podcast looked into the case of Adnan Syed, the individual convicted of the murder of Hae Min Lee, who was once his ex-girlfriend.

The conviction had been vacated and Syed freed; however, in a 2-1 decision, the Maryland appellate court ordered a do-over of the hearing which vacated Syed’s conviction because the circuit court judge had violated the rights of the Young Lee, the brother of the victim. He was not given adequate chance to attend the hearing.

Syed’s attorney has stated that she planned to appeal the decision to the Maryland Supreme Court as the overturning of the decision had to do with procedural matters of notice and mootness rather than Adnan Syed’s guilt or innocence.

Adnan Syed’s situation remains unclear, although Syed’s team is fighting to keep him out of confinement while the next steps are being figured out.
