Baltimore State’s Attorney Says Victim’s Family Kept in Loop About Adnan Syed
This is coming after the victim’s family attorney blasted her for “completely excluding” them.
Mosby joined us Tuesday on “TMZ Live” Tuesday to defend herself after the Lee family attorney said they feel “blindsided and betrayed” by prosecutors’ secret moves to spring Adnan from prison. She shared numerous ways she says her office reached out to them throughout the process as they worked on releasing Syed.
Mosby notes there’s no way they would’ve done any of this work without first contacting the Lee family. She also filled us in on her plans to retry Adnan for murder, but noted there’s one remaining hang-up and it’s related to DNA testing results.
As we reported, Syed was released from prison Monday after serving 23 years of a life sentence for Lee’s 1999 murder.
The Lee family attorney, Steve Kelly, called out Mosby on CNN Tuesday, saying his clients should have been allowed to weigh in on the Syed decision — but Mosby laid out all the irregularities she says made it absolutely necessary to free him … for now.
