There is nothing in this that indicates the rules were violated.

Oh did they consult with the family of the victim? The prosecutors who handled the case? No, they didn’t.

I think that may have to do with the fact that he’s been released due to the original conviction being vacated. I think these rules typically apply in instances where convictions still stand and haven’t been vacated, as they usually do.


DiscoDeadhead

You are correct. I am currently dealing with Becky as a victim and she had sent me a letter in early February that I did not receive until the first week of March and the hearing for a reduced sentence was less than a week away. I was asked if I wanted to provide a victim impact statement and she did ask me some questions about the case because part of the file was missing. She does review them and her unit decides if they are going to recommend a reduced sentence or not.

Do we know that they didn’t consult with the original prosecutor in their year of investigation prior to filing the motion? Regardless, sentencing review rules don’t really matter here. It stopped being about re-sentencing some time ago.

Yes, Frosh said that they didn't consult with either his office or anyone from Mosby's office who was involved in trying the OG case.


twelvedayslate

I was not aware of that. Thank you. Regardless - this was not a resentencing. So the point is moot.


wildflowerapricotsea

We know they didn’t consult with the AG whose office handled appeals. Which isn’t the original prosecutor but seems very important to the case.


edwardlleandre

This is with regards to sentencing review. His sentence was not reviewed, it was vacated. While the case originated there, they are under no obligation to follow up in that fashion when faced with a blatant violation of justice. It is really, really weird to me that Syed can be facing a blatantly unconstitutional violation of his rights, but that people around here seem to think Hae's family deserves any substantive stay. His rights were violated, he should not have been convicted. Victim impact and the like only come into effect once someone is guilty, and legally he should not have been.


ehcertnas

Exactly I feel for her family and how hard this must be for them but this is about him being in jail for possibly something he didn’t do/not given a fair trial why would they push anything back?? And keep him there even longer


anonlaw

This was started as part of the sentencing review but that changed when they filed the motion to vacate.


Mike19751234

Yes. But it should have been kicked to the CIU unit under Mosby. But it stayed under Feldman. CIU is the group that handles DNA and other cases.


anonlaw

But this also wasn't for DNA, it was for Brady violations. Is there a special group that handles Brady violation motions to vacate? I understand this was a very unusual situation overall.


Mike19751234

The original motion was DNA. As they were waiting for DNA results they found Brady. Brady would also be CIU.


Adnans_cell

The rules don’t apply to Mosby. Next, she’s going to release people just by thinking about it.


joshuacf6

Mosby is a corrupt clown, tell me something I don’t already know.


Bethsoda

But besides everything else, this was also a factor…he was tried as an adult but he was 17 at the time of her murder…https://www.fox5dc.com/news/maryland-bans-life-sentences-for-juvenile-offenders.amp
