Provide a brief overview of the facts of the case that was the subject of the Serial Podcast(
Was reasonable notice given to Mr. Lee (Haw Min Lee’s brother) by the Baltimore City prosecutor? If yes, why? If not, what would reasonable notice look like?
How does reasonable notice impact a victims’ ability to be present at a trial or hearing?
How does presence impact a victims’ ability to be heard?
Did the prosecutor in this case comply with Article 47 of the Maryland Constitution requiring, “A victim of crime shall be treated by agents of the State with dignity, respect, and sensitivity during all phases of the criminal justice process.” Why or why not?
What processes could have been established by the prosecutor’s office to ensure there was no question that Mr. Lee had been afforded all of his rights under Maryland law?
Who is ultimately responsible for the delays in this case resolving, the victim or the government? Explain your analysis here.
How has this cased illustrated the general public’s lack of understanding of the difference between compliance of victims’ rights (the concept that those obligated to afford the rights under the law do so) v. enforcement of the rights (the ability to seek redress through the courts when rights are violated)?
