MANITOWOC, WI---- "Making a Murderer" featuring the murder case against Steven Avery is creating a social media-firestorm.

Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey were convicted of the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach.

The Manitowoc County Sheriff is responding to the 10 part series calling it a movie not a documentary.

Sheriff Robert Hermann is receiving a number of emails claiming law enforcement framed Steven Avery.

“The thought of planting of evidence it’s not practical."

Len Kachinsky, the defense attorney representing Brendan Dassey for 6 months, is getting the same backlash.

“Absolutely nothing i did ever prejudiced Dassey's ability to get a fair trial," says Kachinsky.

Sheriff Hermann says he is not concerned about the documentary having any impact on both Avery and Dassey's cases.
