Here is my Making a Murderer review and recap. This show is a bit different than the rest, as it is a documentary that chronicles Steven Avery. Avery was arrested and convicted of the sexual assault of Penny Beernstsen even though he had an alibi. After serving 18 years in prison, he was exonerated with the aid of the Innocence Project. The DNA in the case was matched to another man. He was released from prison in 2003, targeted by the police, and arrested for murder.
Maureen’s Legal Bottom Line
This show is a heartbreaking, true story of what happens when the police target someone innocent. If you think it doesn’t happen, then let me personally tell you that it happens all the damn time.
