'Serial' Subject Adnan Syed Granted a Retrial in Murder Case

Adnan Syed, the man who is the subject of the hit podcast Serial‘s first season, has been granted a retrial in his murder case.

The 35-year-old man was convicted for the 1999 murder of his ex-girlfriend, but he has maintained his innocence over the years and the podcast raised speculation about his guilt.

Syed‘s lawyer, C. Justin Brown, argued in February’s post-conviction hearings that his original defense team was grossly negligent and new evidence was presented, according to the New York Times.

“WE WON A NEW TRIAL FOR ADNAN SYED!!! #FreeAdnan,” the lawyer tweeted on Thursday (June 30).
