          VIDEO

          March 27, 2017

          Ken Kratz became a well-known prosecutor after he appeared in the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer. The former district attorney of Calumet County, Wisconsin tried Steven Avery for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach, receiving a conviction and putting Avery behind bars for life without the possibility of parole. However, some question the tactics Kratz and his team used, accusing them of planting evidence to set up Avery because he was in the process of suing them for $36 million after a previous wrongful conviction.
