A Maryland court ruled today that Adnan Syed, the subject of the popular podcast Serial, deserves a new trial, NPR reports. That decision falls in line with a lower court’s ruling that Syed’s counsel in his original murder trial was deficient and ineffective. Prosecutors could still appeal the decision to Maryland’s highest court, the Court of Appeals. If they do not, Syed’s case will be remanded back to circuit court, where he will be retried.
