BALTIMORE — Maryland officials considered sanctioning the producers of the popular “Serial” podcast for airing Baltimore courtroom audio from the trial of Adnan Syed.

The Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday that officials considered holding the podcast’s producers in contempt. Maryland law prohibits the broadcasting of any criminal case. The paper said court officials this year reached out to “Serial” producer Sarah Koenig about how the tapes ended up in the 2014 podcast.

Koenig said an attorney gave her team incorrect legal advice. She’s agreed not to broadcast court proceedings in the future.
