From 2005

Keith Findley, director of the Wisconsin Innocence Project, which represented Avery, and another member of the task force, also spoke in favor of the bill, on behalf of the State Bar Criminal Law Section.

Findley noted that, nationwide, there have been 162 convictions overturned because of DNA evidence, although there is no way to know how many innocent people are in prison.

Noting that 25 percent of sexual assault suspects today are excluded by DNA evidence, Findley stated that, in cases without DNA, 25 percent of suspects are likely innocent as well.

Okay steven avery is innocent of all charges. There was evidence once again planted on him. I sat in jail with him, and he is a very caring guy we had long talks in jail. For a matter of fact steven avery was not even at the junk yard when he supposly murder theressa. His brother earl, his nephews, brenden, bobby and blaine, played the major roles in it. I think that there should have been a little more investigation going on with them. And honestly I know steven out of jail it he would never do something like this. People really need to ask themselves why would an innocent man just get out of prision for sitting 18 years for a crime that he didnt commit go and do something so stupid. Steven Avery is innocent once again. He is getting the raw end of this once again. Hold your head up Steven there are alot of people who believe that you didnt do anything. Its just people hating. Dont let people get to you.
