(WISN) The third episode of Making a Murderer is entitled “The Plight of the Accused” and focuses on how difficult it was for Steven Avery to defend himself against murder charges; specifically because, as his attorney Walt Kelly claimed, he did not enjoy a presumption of innocence.

Dan O’Donnell is a non-practicing lawyer and radio journalist at WISN, iHeartMedia’s News/Talk station in Wisconsin, who has a unique perspective on the case. Dan was assigned to cover Avery from his release in 2003 through his (and his nephew's) conviction in 2007. While he doesn’t make much of an appearance in the documentary, “Making a Murderer” has had a profound impact on Dan - particularly, due to its bias. And so, Dan is doing what any lawyer would do in the courtroom - rebut the case presented in the Netflix documentary.
