If you watch the final episode (Season 1) of Making a Murderer, Avery’s defense attorneys reflect (now) on the case they lost.
During their discussion, Atty. Dean Strang says: “I gotta tell you, I mean, if I’m gonna be perfectly candid… There’s a big part of me that really hopes Steven Avery’s guilty of this crime… because the thought of him being innocent in this crime. Um, and sitting in prison again… for something he didn’t do, now for the rest of his life, w/o a prayer of parole. Um, I can’t take that…”
It sounds to me like he (now) believes Avery to be guilty. And this is his way of saying that? Because is that something to say, really. (Whether he can stomach the situation is immaterial, really.)
What do you think? 🙂
