'Making a Murderer' attorneys going on tour, coming to MN in June

Publish date:

The attorneys from the popular Netflix series "Making a Murderer" are going on tour, and will be stopping in Minneapolis in June.

Dean Strang and Jerry Buting represented Steven Avery when he was convicted in the 2005 murder of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach. The 10-episode Netflix series highlighted Avery's story, while also raising questions about the man's guilt and how law enforcement officials handled the investigation.

The two attorneys are now going on tour to talk about Avery's case and its broader implications, the tour's website says. They will also discuss the American criminal justice system, its imperfections, and what could be improved.

The "A Conversation On Justice Tour" will also give people in the audience the opportunity to ask Strang and Buting questions.

The multi-city speaking tour begins April 16 in Boston, and will stop at Northrop Auditorium in Minneapolis on June 2. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday at noon. You can buy them here.

This won't be Strang's first time talking shop in Minnesota. He made two appearances here last month, including a bipartisan discussion with state legislators on what they can do to make sure the criminal justice system is as fair as possible.

He also held a talk at Sisyphus Brewing in Minneapolis – the event sold out within hours.

The attorney for Brendan Dassey, Avery's nephew who was also convicted in connection with Halbach's death, also spoke in Minnesota. The panel discussed juvenile confessions, including Dassey's, which some argue was coerced and not truthful.
