By now, the case for the Steven Avery case has been firmly established by a unanimous jury.
Now the real questions arise: How can you tell a lie when it’s a lie?
The answers, according to Steven Avery, are: You can’t.
A judge ruled the case in Avery’s favor last week.
The case is still pending in a retrial.
And even if the retrial goes ahead, Avery will be serving time for the murder of Teresa Halbach.
But if the trial is not successful, and Avery’s lawyers are successful in their appeal, there are still questions that can’t be answered.
What if he’s innocent?
What if Avery is innocent?
This is a tough question to answer.
But here are the five biggest myths that have been debunked over the years.
* A big problem with the Avery case: The prosecution presented its case in clear, simple terms.
The prosecutors presented it in a way that was easy to understand.
Prosecutors presented the case to the jury in a very clear way.
And there is no way to know for sure how the jury will perceive a case without a trial.
The prosecution never asked the jurors to take into account a number of factors.
That’s why, for instance, there was no mention of whether Avery was guilty of first-degree intentional homicide.
Prosecutors only gave jurors a few examples of the many times Avery would commit a crime, including: stealing an infant from his mother’s womb and then killing her in cold blood.
* The Avery defense: It never took place.
Prosecutors never offered any evidence tying Avery to Halbach’s disappearance.
They didn’t even say where Avery lived.
It wasn’t until the prosecution presented an alibi witness that Avery’s lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, came up with an alibis.
Avery didn’t live near Halbach and Zellners alibi testimony was never used in court.
Even after Zellers testimony, the prosecution still claimed Avery was in Averys car when he went to the Avery salvage yard to retrieve the car.
It’s important to note that the defense did offer the alibi claim.
But it was only to prove that Avery was there when Halbach was murdered.
The defense was not allowed to present any evidence.
This is because they would have to prove Avery did not murder Halbach or that there was nothing in Avery case to indicate he was involved in the murder.
* Avery’s defense: Prosecutors never introduced the evidence.
The Averys lawyers argued that the evidence wasn’t introduced because it was inadmissible at trial.
So the jury didn’t have any choice but to accept the alibias.
That was not true.
They were given a blank slate to draw from.
Prosecutors introduced the aligibations of five people, but none of them was a witness to Halbach’s disappearance, even though the prosecution argued it was.
The government also argued that Halbach wasn’t kidnapped at the salvage yard, which it also argued was irrelevant.
Prosecutors did not introduce any evidence, other than to say Halbachs alibi didn’t exist.
* And then there’s the trial: The trial was a sham.
After prosecutors started the trial, they told the jury that there were some witnesses who had told the story in a clear way and the prosecution never offered those witnesses.
The jurors never saw them testify.
Instead, the prosecutors called the defense experts who were supposedly expert witnesses, and the jurors didn’t see them testify, either.
The judge ruled that the jury should have seen the defense expert testimony, but he didn’t say what they were or what they said.
The jury was left to infer from the testimony.
The trial wasn’t the only one to go awry in the case.
It was the only time in the past five years that the state claimed the defense was trying to convict Avery.
Prosecutors brought in a forensic anthropologist to examine Halbach but the judge said the defense didn’t ask for him to come to the stand.
The police were called, and they testified that Halbbach was in her own car and that she was driving the car at the time of the killing.
Prosecutors also brought in another forensic expert who had testified in a trial, but it wasn’t brought up in court, either because it wasn the only witness that was brought up, or because he didn´t testify.
The only other time in recent years that prosecutors did try to bring in a witness was when they brought in the alicias of two people to testify against Avery.
The alibi experts didn’t show up to testify either, even as the state argued they did.
So why was this a big deal?
The prosecution and the defense had a major problem in the Steven Halbach case: They had to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
And the prosecution had to demonstrate that Avery had committed a crime and was guilty.
The state argued that Avery committed the crime and that he was innocent.
And then the defense argued that there
