I'm glad that monster is in prison for the rest of his life
Sean Avery was the real monster
plz share your thoughts on the case
Speaking of Napoleon, It's my favorite dessert.
Those paradise lost docs framed it as one of the dads three different times and had me convinced each time. Documentaries are bullshit.
I've only watched the first couple episodes and haven't examined all the evidence and testimony...
It's clear that manitowoc county was involved even after being told to stay out of it...
He probably deserves a new trial in a different county along with his retarded nephew who was illegally/improperly interrogated.
The original drummer for Guns n Roses?
I agree the trial was unfair but he killed that woman
It amazed me that they never followed up on the bloody black dude that walked into the Bojangles restaurant the night of the murders
They left out where he was convicted of stalking and kidnapping someone earlier and that he would have served 6 years of his 18 regardless.
or that he was going to be charged with the rape of an underage family member in a 2004 incident but after he was charged with murder they chose to drop it
who else is a lawyer on this site?
He must be so pissed that he's not invited to play the Super Bowl with the rest of them
Guilty of being mvp of the 91 ncls
Is this true?
the whitehouse was partitioned and replied that the would not intervene because it is a state matter. the state gov said let him rot. it sounds like, regardless of the methods, justice was served.
"Avery assault charges delayed DA: Halbach slaying charges get priority; alleged victim agrees
GREEN BAY — A desire to protect a teenager from the media frenzy surrounding the Steven Avery homicide case prompted a prosecutor to not charge Avery with sexually assaulting a relative in 2004.
Avery, 43, faces first-degree intentional homicide and sexual assault charges and four other felonies stemming from the Oct. 31 slaying of freelance photographer Teresa Halbach of St. John.
Evidence in the 2004 sexual assault case came to light during the Halbach investigation and prompted authorities to seek charges unrelated to Halbach's death.
Brown County Dist. Atty. John Zakowski said that with a life sentence already on the line for Avery, there was no reason to push the sexual assault case.
"As a prosecutor, I think we look at the situation and your first gut reaction is to go forward," Zakowski said Wednesday. "But you have to look at the entire picture here and you have to keep in mind the impact to the complainant."
The alleged victim agrees with the decision, Zakowski said. "She's indicated she feels the weight of the world is off her shoulders at this time … and it's quite understandable," he said.
Zakowski was appointed to the sexual assault case because Manitowoc County officials have a conflict due to a civil suit Avery filed against the county following his release from prison in 2003. In addition, Calumet County prosecutors are busy handling the Halbach homicide case.
Zakowski said the allegation involved sexual intercourse with a girl over the age of 16. He said the girl was a relative of Avery's and the alleged attack took place in Manitowoc County.
State Justice Department agents interviewed the complainant's mother in January 2006 as part of the Halbach investigation. They learned that the woman's daughter allegedly had been assaulted by Avery, according to an affidavit filed by Calumet County Dist. Atty. Ken Kratz as part of the Halbach case.
The woman said her daughter did not want to talk to detectives because Avery said if she "told anyone about their activities together, he would kill her family," the affidavit said.
The next day, the victim, now an adult, told investigators Avery had sex with her in the summer of 2004.
Avery told The Associated Press that he had spent a lot of time hunting and fishing with the girl a few summers ago when she was 16 or 17. "Then her mom got an idea something was going on," he said.
Avery said the two never had sex.
Zakowski said the fact that Avery is being held in lieu of $750,000 bail and faces a life sentence with no parole allows him the luxury of time without sacrificing protection of the public.
Should Avery prevail or avoid prosecution in the Halbach homicide, Zakowski said he is ready to go forward on the sexual assault allegation.
This wasn't the first complaint made against Avery involving this alleged victim.
In August 2004, the girl's family reported they were concerned about Avery's relationship with the girl. Calumet County investigators interviewed the girl and Avery at the time and found the concerns unfounded.
Zakowski said allegations were handled appropriately at the time and people should not speculate how it might have made a difference for Teresa Halbach.
"I don't want anyone saying, 'Well if this would have happened, maybe the Halbach situation would have been avoided.' That wasn't the case here," Zakowski said.
Avery served 18 years in prison for a 1985 sexual assault conviction that was later overturned by DNA evidence, prompting his release in 2003."
