LARAMIE, Wyo. (Wyoming State Bar Release) The Wyoming State Bar is thrilled to announce that Dean Strang, one of the defense lawyers from the smash-hit Netflix series, Making a Murderer, will be delivering the keynote at this year’s Annual Banquet. The banquet is held at the Annual Meeting & Judicial Conference on Thursday, September 15th, at the UW Conference Center in Laramie.
Dean Strang, long regarded as one of Wisconsin’s best criminal defense lawyers, has received international acclaim for his role in defending Steve Avery. Avery, a convicted rapist who spent 18 years in prison before being released in 2003 based upon DNA evidence, was subsequently charged and convicted of the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach, a 25-year-old photographer. The attention garnered by Making a Murderer has propelled Strang to the forefront of thoughtful commentators on important justice related topics.
