Adnan Syed

A court ruled that lack of notice about the hearing that made Syed a free man violated the rights of Hae Min Lee’s family. Now the Lees want a redo — with a seat at the table.
Syed’s legal case began more than two decades ago, and gained international attention from the hit podcast “Serial.” He regained his freedom in September.
Syed will not be taken back into custody.
The subject of the true-crime podcast "Serial" was released from a Maryland prison this year after a judge overturned his conviction.
A judge has given Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby's office 30 days to decide whether to pursue new charges or drop the case against Syed.

Adnan Syed is serving a life sentence after he was convicted in 2000 of killing 17-year-old Hae Min Lee and burying her body in a Baltimore park.
Syed, who was convicted of murdering his high school ex-girlfriend, was the subject of the hit podcast “Serial.”
