Avery, Dassey, and Denny

Check out my newest article in the Wisconsin Law Journal -- a discussion of Wisconsin's Denny rule.  The article, Convicting Avery (and Overturning Denny), explains how the Denny rule was partly responsible for Avery's wrongful, eighteen-year imprisonment in the Beerntsen case, as well as the denial of his right to present a defense in the Halbach case.  In more "Making a Murderer" news, Prometheus Books has just titled my new book, Convicting Avery: The Bizarre Laws and Broken System behind "Making a Murderer", to be published in early 2017.  And yes, there will be a chapter devoted to Wisconsin's Denny rule.
