Tossing out the homicide, kidnapping, theft and false imprisonment convictions, Judge Phinn order that Syed—who spent over twenty years behind bars—be launched on his personal recognizance and positioned in dwelling detention.

The decide additionally gave prosecutors 30 days to proceed with a brand new trial or drop the case completely.

After the ruling, Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh issued a press release saying that the accusation of proof being withheld from the protection was “incorrect.” 

“Among the other serious problems with the motion to vacate, the allegations related to Brady violations are incorrect,” the assertion learn. “Neither State’s Attorney [Marilyn] Mosby nor anyone from her office bothered to consult with either the Assistant State’s Attorney who prosecuted the case or with anyone in my office regarding these alleged violations.
