Releases him from prison

LINK

Baltimore Circuit Judge Melissa Phinn on Monday overturned Syed’s first-degree murder conviction in the 1999 killing of Hae Min Lee after prosecutors and Syed’s lawyer filed motions questioning the integrity of the trial and evidence that has left him behind bars these past 23 years.


UPDATE (10/11/2022): All Charges Dropped

The New York Times

Baltimore prosecutors on Tuesday dropped the charges against Adnan Syed, who was released last month after he spent 23 years in prison fighting a murder conviction that was chronicled in the hit podcast “Serial,” officials said.

Some fat ugly chicks wanted him released because they watched a Netflix doc and a judge wanted some internet cred

DA has 90 days to decide if they want to retry.

When the prosecutor moves to set aside a conviction because they “no longer had faith in the integrity of his conviction” and that it was in the interest of justice that he be afforded a new trial, I’m not sure if the judge’s desire for street cred is particularly relevant

Damn that’s crazy

Jay absolutely had some sketchy shite to do with her murder

And the random guy who walks like 500 yards off the highway to go pee and stumbles onto her body was super weird too. Like in an entire forest you walk that deep in just to take a piss and find a girl who just so happened to be murdered.

Plus he killed an asian girl so no one cares. The absolute bottom of the totem pole of media attention. Kill an asian girl but some ugly chicks think you're cute in your 20 year old pictures and watched a Netflix doc so you get released from prison.

The guy that testified against him has a history of being shady.

The state's prosecutors basically said they don't think he's guilty, or at least they aren't confident that he is. That's a pretty big checkbox in that dude's favor.

Had you actually listened to the podcast before forming an opinion, you would know that the “podcast lady” didn’t actually give an opinion on his innocence. In fact, she spent most of the last episode bothered by the whole thing, especially that he refused help in paying for further forensic testing.

I listened to that podcast when it came out years ago. It was the first real big true crime podcast. The evidence on “Serial” in support of Adnen was all very weak.

No. That isn't the case.

They think key evidence is suspect now, so the CONVICTION is suspect. They can still think he's guilty as hell, and retry him and just leave out that evidence.

With how much attention this thing has gotten, I wonder how/where they can get an unbiased trial. Everybody has some sort of opinion on this it seems

It isn't the burden of the defendant to produce strong evidence, it is on the prosecution, and let's talk about weak evidence.

I think he did it, but I also think there wasn't CLOSE to enough evidence to convict. Jay was completely discredited and his account was proven inaccurate and that was most of their case.

Lee’s family has maintained their belief Syed is guilty and have struggled with the publicity and support Syed receives. “It remains hard to see so many run to defend someone who committed a horrible crime, who destroyed our family, who refuses to accept responsibility, when so few are willing to speak up for Hae,” the family said in a 2016 statement issued through the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. Unlike those who learn about this case on the Internet,” the family said then, “we sat and watched every day of both trials — so many witnesses, so much evidence.
