'Making a Murderer' Lawyers Plan Spring & Summer Speaking Tour

Late last year the world was captivated by the complex case of convicted felon Steven Avery, who was the focal point of the hit Netflix documentary Making a Murderer. A Manitowoc, Wisconsin native, Avery is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach, though many factors exist in the push to prove Avery's innocence in the crime. Now, Avery's lawyers Dean Strang and Jerry Buting will continue the discussion this spring and summer when they embark on a speaking tour across North America.

Being titled "A Conversation on Justice", the 26-city trek begins on April 16 at Berklee Performance Center in Boston and concludes on August 21 at Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The tour will primarily hit theaters and auditoriums across the U.S. along the four-month run. Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton will be the Canadian destination points.

"A Conversation on Justice" tickets for all dates go on sale to the general public this Friday, March 4 at 10 a.m. local time. Exclusive AEG, Radio and Venue pre-sales will be made available beginning Thursday, March 3 at 10 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m. later that night.

Since the release of Making a Murderer last December, Strang and Buting have become pivotal pieces in swaying the public's opinion of Avery. The 53-year-old was exonerated of a previous sex crime in 2003 after advancements in DNA testing proved his innocence, though his release came after serving eighteen years in prison for the crime he didn't commit. Tampering of evidence and law official bias are major claims in Avery's murder case, and renowned defense attorney Kathleen Zellner has since taken on the case to absolve Avery and appeal his life sentence conviction.
