Could Steven Avery really walk free after being convicted of murder? The ‘Making A Murderer’ subject has a brand new lawyer, and she says she has evidence that will prove her client is an innocent man.
Steven Avery, 53, still has a chance at freedom, according to his new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner. Just after filing a brand new appeal to have his murder conviction from 2005 thrown out, Steven’s lawyer has revealed that there is new evidence to finally prove what so many Making A Murderer viewers already believe: Steven is innocent.
“We are continuing to examine every aspect of Mr. Avery’s case and all of his legal options,” Steven’s new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, told The Wrap. “We are confident Mr. Avery’s conviction will be vacated when we present the new evidence and results of our work to the appropriate court.” Whoa!
Obviously Kathleen is not willing or able to disclose what any of this “new” evidence consists of, mostly because it could potentially affect their chance at proving Steven’s innocence to the court. However, it’s definitely very interesting that 10 years after Teresa Halbuch’s murder in 2005, crucial new pieces of the puzzle are still being put together.
The new evidence claims come at almost the exact same time as Steven’s most recent appeal, in which he claims one of the juror’s was tainted and pitted the others against him. However, it’s unclear whether or not the new evidence is related to the appeal or the juror in question.
As many of you may already know, the Making A Murderer series on Netflix has captivated viewers all over the world. So many people believe that Steven and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, are innocent that they created a petition asking the White House to pardon Steven. Unfortunately, POTUS wasn’t interested in helping them out.
