Judge Jeanine on 'Making a Murderer' Case: Here's Why Avery Is 'So Guilty'
Judge Jeanine Pirro and Geraldo Rivera went back and forth this morning on the "Making a Murderer" case.
The hit Netflix documentary focuses on Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey’s murder convictions and life sentences in the death of Teresa Halbach in 2005.
Avery's defense attorneys claim that Wisconsin police planted crucial evidence at the scene.
Rivera said it's "entirely possible that a guilty man was framed," saying that Avery could have committed the murder and some evidence could have also been planted to make the case stronger.
He also brought up the fact that "all of Avery's travails" followed his lawsuit against Manitowoc County because he had served 18 years in prison for a rape he did not commit.
But Pirro said the "evidence is as solid as any murder case I've tried," rejecting the notion that Avery was the victim of retribution by authorities.
She pointed out that some facts of the case are undisputable: Avery called Halbach, she was at his junkyard, her bones were found in a fire pit by his trailer, her DNA was found on a bullet fragment in his garage and his DNA was found under the hood of her vehicle.
Pirro and Rivera agreed that the Netflix piece should not be labeled as a "documentary," but as "advocacy journalism."
Watch the debate above, and tune in on Fox News Channel Saturday and Sunday at 8:00pm ET as Judge Pirro hosts an in-depth look at the case on Steven Avery: Guilty or Framed.
