If you haven't seen the documentary series Making a Murderer on Netflix (or YouTube) yet, we won't spoil it for you, but you definitely should get on that. If you have seen it, then you already know that the story of Steven Avery, an outsider convicted and later exonerated of a brutal crime, is crazy addictive.
"[Avery's] release triggered major criminal justice reform legislation, and he filed a lawsuit that threatened to expose corruption in local law enforcement and award him millions of dollars. But in the midst of his very public civic case, he suddenly finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime."
Ken Kratz, who was the special prosecutor on the case says he wasn't given a chance to respond to allegations made in the documentary against himself and the sheriff's office suggesting that they had it out for Avery and framed him in the second murder case, according to CNN.
Kratz said that because of that one-sided nature of the show, viewers of the series have been getting in touch with him before the holidays to share their death threats against him.
"Suggestions that I shouldn't even be walking around," Kratz told CNN. "I was offered the good cheer that I should get stomach cancer for Christmas."
The creators of the series, however, say they did give Kratz a chance to respond and give his side of the story, though Kratz said that the documentary was one-sided and ignored proof of Avery's guilt.
"I believe 80 to 90 percent of the physcical evidence against Steven Avery in this case was never presented in this documentary," he said.
