It looks like Adnan Syed might have another chance of reclaiming his freedom.
If, like us, you listen to Sarah Koenig's Serial podcast and were completely enthralled by the almost movie-like plot, this latest news could actually give us an ending that the show, despite its overall quality, lacked.
According to The Batimore Sun, Adnan's attorney, Justin Brown filed a motion this week which claimed that his client's then attorney, Cristina Gutierrez, failed to raise questions about a cover sheet Adnan's phone provider included with the data it turned over, which was used as evidence against Mr. Syed.
The cover sheet stated that “outgoing calls only are reliable for location status. Any incoming calls will NOT be considered reliable information for location.”
If you're trying to remember why that would be important, let us refresh your memory. Incoming calls were used to place Adnan in Lincoln Park the day of his ex-girlfriend's Hae Min Lee murder, which was also where he body was discovered.
This latest development could help Adnan's appeal process even further, after the Court of Special Appeals agreed to take his case under consideration back in February. The court also agreed to allow Asia McClain, Adnan's alibi who was never questioned by his lawyer, to testify.
Nobody knows if any of this will actually change anything, but at the very least if it goes to trial we'll get a definitive answer as to Adnan's future.
