War of words: Maryland AG Brian Frosh, Marilyn Mosby spar over evidence that led to Adnan Syed’s release

September 22, 2022

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby accused Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh of hiding evidence to keep Adnan Syed in prison, as a simmering feud between arguably the state’s two most powerful elected lawyers boiled over Wednesday. Syed, whose case became known internationally after the podcast “Serial” was released in 2014, was convicted of murder in the 1999 killing of Hae Min Lee, his former high school girlfriend. He was behind bars for 23 years until Monday, when a judge vacated his conviction and ordered Syed released on home detention after supposedly new evidence about alternative suspects in the case was brought to light.
