NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Monday, January 4, 2016, 12:21 PM Netflix has convinced the court of public opinion that the subject of its new series “Making a Murderer” was wrongfully convicted — but the man will remain behind bars unless new evidence comes forth, according to his lawyer. “We’re all hoping the attention to this induces somebody who saw something, who heard something or who has been carrying a secret to come forward,” said criminal defense attorney Dean Strang, who represented Steven Avery with co-counsel Jerome Buting at his 2007 trial.
Steven Avery’s defense attorneys Dean Strang and Jerry Buting appeared on today’s episode of CBS This Morning to discuss their client, Making a Murderer. and the seemingly damning evidence that directors Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi didn’t include in the show. When Gayle King asked if Strang and Buting were convinced of Avery’s innocence, Strang replied, “I’m not convinced of his guilt,” implying what many viewers have taken away from the show: The prosecution did not prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.
