A big crowd coming out to support Steven Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, in Manitowoc County today.
Avery is becoming a household name after the release of the popular Netflix documentary “Making a Murderer.”
Avery and Dassey were convicted of killing Teresa Halbach in 2005.
Avery’s supporters believe he didn’t get a fair trial and was wrongfully convicted. But not everyone at the protest believes Avery and Dassey are innocent.
“He was found guilty by his peers in a trial and that’s it. It’s too bad for the Halbach family. I hope they ain’t watching none of this. Because this is a circus, you know.”
Avery got a new lawyer, and appealed his conviction earlier this month.
