In this episode, Laura analyses the most significant aspects of the state’s motion report requesting that Adnan Syed’s conviction be vacated. The report was filed on September 14 2022 and it ultimately led to Adnan Syed being freed on Monday 19th September, after 23 years in prison.


Adnan Syed was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and false imprisonment of his 18 year old ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, in 1999.  Adnan has steadfastly maintained his innocence and denied any involvement in Hae’s murder.


The case was subject to the podcast Serial which debuted in 2014 and has been downloaded millions of times. Also, props to Undisclosed podcast Season 1 ‘The State v. Adnan Syed’ with Rabia Chaudry, Susan Stimpson and Colin Miller. They go through the case in painstaking detail and highlight key information that was omitted by Serial. I also recommend you watch HBO’s The Case Against Adnan Syed.


This is an incredibly quick turnaround which is extremely rare in cases. Hae Min Lee’s family were represented by Hae’s younger brother, Young Lee, after Judge Phinn ordered a 30 minute recess in court to give him an opportunity to speak. Find out what happened in court, what Young Lee told the court, what the state argued and listen to Laura discuss what happens next with the case.
