Things seemed to be going Steven Avery’s way until they weren’t.  After 18 years in jail Avery’s case was the driving force behind much need justice reform, the State was going to introducing a bill to compensate him for his wrongful conviction, and Avery’s civil lawsuit against Manitowoc County and the police was gaining momentum.

But when Avery becomes the main suspect in Teresa Halbach disappearance those who had supported him the most began to question his innocence. Avery’s life is thrown into chaos when he is charged with Halbach murder. His guilt is presumed even by his closest allies, his civil suit collapses and the wheels of a potential wrongful conviction begin to turn, again.

Episode 3 of Netflix’s Making a Murderer raises important questions about the erosion of the presumption of innocence, the disparity between the rich and the poor, the necessity of expert legal counsel, and the police and prosecution’s role in poisoning the fairness of the trial process through the media.

This week we are joined again by special guest, former Supreme Court Justice and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour (who shares a personal story about potential police misconduct).

So a former judge, a defence lawyer, and former prosecutor – the dream team together again!
