Ken Kratz book will be published in the autumn
Making A Murderer lawyer Ken Kratz is writing a book he says will prove Steven Avery’s guilt.
Avery is the focus of Making A Murderer, the Netflix documentary which tells the story of his conviction for the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. Both and nephew Brendan Dassey are serving life sentences for the murder, having been convicted in 2007. Making A Murderer pays particular attention to perceived injustices in the case.
As the head of the prosecution, Kratz has become something of a villain among Making A Murderer fans, but he says that his book will prove that the outcome of the trial was correct.
“I believe somebody needs to stand up for the cops, the courts, and the victim by telling the truth and setting forth the vast amount of evidence proving Avery’s guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt,” said the man who prosecuted Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey.
Kratz says that his book will be released towards the end of 2016 and that he is “honoured to share a portion of the proceeds of this book honoring the memory of Teresa Halbach”
