Michael Griesbach had been a prosecutor for 22 years and thought he had seen it all. But nothing prepared him for the case of Steven Avery-a true crime story, where the good guys are sometimes the bad guys and the bad guys the good. It is case of violent crime with a mind-numbing twist, but mostly, it's a case about innocence and guilt. On July 29, 1985, Penny Beernsten set out for a late afternoon jog on a beach on the Lake Michigan shoreline, unaware that just minutes later a deranged sex offender would shatter her world forever. Within hours police zeroed in on Steven Avery, a known offender who was out on bail for a serious crime. Armed only with suspicion and lacking a warrant, they dragged their suspect to jail.  What followed was a 20 year crime saga that gripped the entire state making Steven Avery a celebrity in Wisconsin and leaving the local justice system nearly in ruins.
