‘Making a Murderer’ Lawyer Lands Book Deal
The buzz around the Netflix series Making a Murderer seems to grow larger with each passing day. Maybe that’s why Jerome Buting, one of Steven Avery’s trial lawyers, decided to cash in on his fame and sign a book deal with HarperCollins (as reported by GalleyCat).
Buting starred in Making a Murderer, and is now penning a manuscript that will tell readers even more about the murder trial that the show focused on.
In case anyone has been living in a hole, MaM is a documentary series filmed over a 10 year period that reviews the life of Steven Avery, a man accused, and then acquitted, of a woman’s murder (only to then be accused of committing another murder after filing a multimillion dollar lawsuit against Manitowoc county and several county officials). The premise sheds light on several issues perpetrated by Manitowoc County that led to Avery’s original conviction.
Buting’s tell-all book will come out sometime next year under the Harper Imprint. Will anybody be reading?
