Courtesy Making A Murderer Avery Cabin

Faced with the prospect that Avery needed criminal defense cash, Avery’s civil attorneys had no choice but to cash him in, and free up his proceeds for criminal representation.  Both civil attorneys were actively trying to locate Steven Avery fearing he was being questioned without representation for several hours (he was) the day of his arrest and said so in several televised interviews.  During questioning, Calumet Detective Mark Wiegert accuses Avery of the murder of Teresa Halbach- whether accidentally or accidentally on-purpose.

Weigert asks Avery, “Then why is her blood all over your trailer?” Avery responds “No It Ain’t”. 

Wiegert asks- “why is your blood all over the inside of her car then?”  Avery responds, “Cops got a lot of my blood, they took blood from me many times, vials.”

 Avery is originally arrested on a felon in possession of a firearm charge, and subsequently upgraded to the first degree murder of Teresa Halbach following DNA confirmations of her remains on the property.  Although all investigative reports provided to Avery’s initial public defender reflect no involvement in the searches  or collection of evidence by Manitowoc deputies in any capacity, presented at Avery’s preliminary,  a Calumet county deputy was asked just the right question, in just the right way, gleans this gem:  although searched six times, on the 7th search following confirmation of Halbachs blood in her own vehicle, Kucharsky admits he was never told to watch the actions of Manitowoc deputies Andrew Colborn and James Lenk – who by the way, just happened to find the valet key to Teresa Halbach’s Rav 4 that Lucharsky also testified was not there in any prior search.

Colborn and Lenk were central figures responsible for the wrongful conviction in 1985 of Steven Avery. The key contained only Avery’s DNA.

Avery’s civil attorney,  Stephen Glynn, calls Avery on February 16, 2006 and recommended his former partner Dean Strang, and if possible, also Jerome Buting as his criminal defense team.  Strang was well known in cases involving allegations of police misconduct and Buting had experience and name recognition for successfully defending high profile cases in Wisconsin.   After paying his civil lawyers, Avery coughed up a joint $240,000 retainer for the duo.  By then, the Avery family had already consented to participation in Making A Murderer.

Dean Strang and Jerome Buting see significant screen time in Making A  Murderer.  While both Wisconsin barristers are masterful to the point if I were a Wisconsite I might consider a victimless crime just to experience their representation- not even they could foresee how the shell game mastery of special prosecutor Ken Kratz.  Kratz was appointed to the case from neighboring Calumet County so as to assuage the very appearance of any impropriety or conflict on behalf of the county who (ostensibly) just funded Avery’s defense.

Kratz, an elected DA with zero supervision in his role was more than ready to demonstrate his Kratz-as- Kratz- can technique . (more…)

Durst Dragnet To Testify At Thursday Hearing: Will Robert Durst’s Legal Augers Succeed Again? LIVE Discussion Tonight at 9PM On THE DANA PRETZER SHOW

Fear him or jeer him- Bob Durst is the Houdini of criminal prosecution thus far.  Sitting in a medical wing  at the Elayn Hunt Correctional Center in St. Gabriel, Louisiana he is awaiting his next “report to scene” call- currently scheduled for this Thursday.   His Texas lawyers Chip Lewis and Dick DeGuerin intend to pull his freedom out of their ten gallon hats- freedom from the charges Durst is facing in Louisiana that is.   If that happens,  Durst has already waived extradition to be transferred to Los Angeles  to face the pending criminal indictment against him in the 2000 murder of his close friend, commiserator and confidant,  Susan Berman.  The State of Louisiana has thirty days to enforce extradition and that shot-clock runs out next week.

DeGuerin Durst

Last week Durst’s  preliminary hearing was continued  at the request of his attorneys when three law enforcement witnesses who are named in a probable cause affidavit failed to comply with a subpoena and appear at the hearing.   Mark Burton,  Supervisor, Magistrate and Municipal Courts of New Orleans at Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office, repeatedly and by many accounts bawled loudly for the defense to present alternative witnesses to the three contained in the arrest warrant.   Burton asked the court to consider his unauthenticated arrest warrant (legal equivalent of a soiled cocktail napkin for this proceeding)  signed by Trooper Saunders Craine to serve as probable cause of the States charges against Durst.    Burton produced no witnesses of his own and Municipal Judge Harry Cantrell, Jr. was unmoved.  Cantrell continued the hearing until this Thursday.

Sources who wish to remain anonymous as they are not authorized to speak publicly about the case have confirmed to www.blinkoncrime.com that SA Williams,  SA Bender and Sgt Craine have been compelled to appear.   Although Federal prosecutors initially barred the FBI agents from testifying and have subsequently motioned to remove the subpoenas entirely,  it is unclear upon what reasoning Trooper Craine decided to dodge the subpoena considering his name is signed to the affidavit.

Could the United States Attorney’s Office be considering Federal charges against Durst?

All may be leading to the classic audience favorite however- the bait and switch- as Durst is due in court this afternoon on the extradition matter and Teflon Bob’s New Orleans based Attorney Billy Gibbens intends to push for immediate extradition.    It is the defense’s position that the pending charges against Durst resulted from an illegal search conducted before a search warrant was obtained for his hotel room after he was confronted by FBI agents in the lobby.   After Thursday’s melee,  DeGuerin wasted no time and filed his Good Friday  motion for dismissal of the felony firearm and possession of marijuana charges on the grounds that no probable cause has been offered and asks Cantrell to “end these tortuous proceedings.”

“It’s all part of us making an effort to get to California,” DeGuerin told The Times, noting, “I would think the Los Angeles prosecutors would be clamoring to the him out there.” “I think what will develop is that the agents didn’t have probable cause to make an arrest, they didn’t have probable cause to make a search; they made a search before they had a search warrant. “The evidence is not admissible,” he said, adding: “That’s what we hope to establish if we can ever get a witness to take the stand.”- Atty Dick DeGuerin

Assistant DA Mark Burton is feeling the heat to drop the charges and there does seem to be a pretty wide legal majority that agrees with DeGuerin’s motion that there is not a single law on the books that allows Burton to offer as an  authenticated warrant without testimony at a preliminary hearing.

How  one thinks that is going to roll when the Houston search warrant alone specifies that Durst was already under surveillance for months may be Burton’s turn at magic.
