Adnan Syed, the enigmatic subject of the wildly popular “Serial” podcast, got big news this week.
The Maryland Court Of Special Appeals on Monday handed down a major ruling in Syed’s favor that effectively grants him a new evidentiary hearing and opens the door for testimony by a key witness favorable to Syed’s case.
Syed’s high school friend Asia McClain was never called to testify at his original 1999 trial, in which he was convicted of murdering his ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee. Syed’s current counsel contends that not having McClain testify was a costly mistake by his original attorney, who has since died. McClain wrote an affidavit in 2000 establishing an alibi for Syed and filed another affidavit earlier this year claiming that former Assistant State’s Attorney Kevin Urick suppressed her testimony at Syed’s 2010 appeal and discouraged her from participating in the trial.
