‘Making a Murderer’ Defendants Still Feeling Impact From Series

Steven Drizin, who works at the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, is Dassey’s current lawyer. [Dassey was convicted of murder, among other charges, in 2007 when he was 17.] Drizin believes he knows why the series has struck a chord with millions of viewers. “I think the series has really opened people’s eyes to just how overzealous law enforcement can be in their efforts to gain a conviction at all costs,” he says. – Maria Cavassuto, Variety http://ift.tt/1UMAV7m
