Avery Attorney Pushes for Substitute Judge
Steven Avery’s attorney is filing a motion to substitute the judge overseeing the convicted killer’s appeal. His case is going back to circuit court as his attorneys plan to present thousands of files holding previously undisclosed evidence – as he seeks to appeal his 2007 murder conviction in the death of Teresa Halbach. Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, is also serving a life sentence in the case. Dassey’s case is being reviewed by the US Supreme Court.
