ADNAN SYED RELEASED FROM PRISON

A judge has overturned the murder conviction of Adnan Syed . His case first caught the public’s attention after it was featured on the true-crime podcast “Serial.”  The decision comes as prosecutors say they had doubts about Syed’s conviction, especially as a year-long investigation turned up other possible suspects.  A Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge also ordered him to be released from prison.  Syed was first arrested in 1999 as a 17-year-old high school student for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee.  He was later sentenced to life in prison in 2000 and had since been trying to get a new trial to prove his innocence.
