Another lawyer involved in the case of Steven Avery, the subject of Netflix’s “Making a Murderer” docuseries, is writing a tell-all book.
Michael Griesbach was a prosecutor who handled both Avery’s wrongful conviction in 1985 and the much-disputed conviction for the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005.
Both Avery and and his nephew Brendan Dassey were found guilty of the latter crime, and are currently serving in prison in Wisconsin. The case was made famous by Netflix documentary “Making a Murderer.”
Griesbach’s book “Indefensible: The Missing Truth About Steven Avery, Teresa Halbach, and ‘Making a Murderer'” promises to present new incriminating evidence of Avery’s guilt, and will be published on March 29, 2016, by Kensington Publishing Co.
“While Steven Avery’s wrongful conviction in 1985 was one of local law enforcement’s darkest hours, his conviction for murder twenty-two years later is one of its finest,” Griesbach said in a statement.
The news of Griesbach’s book comes just just weeks after district attorney Ken Katz, who prosecuted Avery and Dassey for the Halbach murder, announced he was publishing his own tell-all book on the case.
“Making a Murderer” raised red flags about local Wisconsin law enforcement practices, leading some to feel strongly that Avery and Dassey were potentially framed by the local cops.
“Indefensible” will be Griesbach’s second book about Avery. In 2014, he published “The Innocent Killer,” which focused on both Avery’s first wrongful conviction and the Halbach case.
