The Opposite of the Prosecution

Series 1 - Episode 7 The Opposite of the Prosecution



Sarah Koenig investigates another murder trial that bears a remarkable similarity to Adnan Syed's. The case took place in Virginia, featured one key witness, incriminating mobile phone records, young people, drugs, and a defendant who has doggedly maintained his innocence. Sarah speaks to one of the defence attorneys on the case in the hope of gaining an insight into Adnan's predicament, and ends up getting much more than she bargained for.
