In the tenth episode of The Last Line, James talks to criminal defence attorney, star of 'Making a Murderer' and author of 'Illusion of Justice: Inside Making A Murderer and America's Broken System', Jerry Buting. During their conversation they discuss the problems with the justice system in America, the benefits of the filming of trials, Jerry's faith and battle with cancer and why people are more drawn towards a job in prosecution than defence.
Jerry Buting has worked as a criminal defence lawyer in the state of Wisconsin for more than thirty-five years. Jerry has worked on many high profile cases during his career and shot to fame when his role as co-defence attorney in the State v. Steven Avery murder trial was documented in the Netflix series Making A Murderer. As well as his continued work within the justice system, Jerry has also written a book 'Illusion of Justice: Inside Making A Murderer and America's Broken System' in which he offers an insider's insight into the justice system's problems and proposes ways in which we can perpetuate change.
