I don’t know Adnan Syed. I’ve never met him, but I feel like he’s a member of my family. And just a few minutes ago, Judge Welch ruled that Adnan would be granted a new trial and his conviction vacated. This new trial is being granted on the cell phone evidence presented on the Undisclosed Podcast (which, if you liked Serial Season 1, you MUST listen to) proving that the cell tower evidence was not correct during his trial.
This is still a developing story, but it’s so exciting that I had to write a short post. Proud to be an American today!
