Maybe this will lift his spirits!

If you've been on the Internet at all in the past two weeks, chances are you heard about the case of Steven Avery thanks to the Netflix docu-series Making a Murderer.

While the public consensus is that Steven and his nephew Brendan Dassey were unjustly convicted of murder despite a lack of evidence, it seems like fans are no longer content with trashing the former prosecutor in bad Yelp reviews.

In the 17 days since its premiere, over 170,000 people have signed a Change.org petition to get the Manitowoc County, Wisconsin men a pardon from President Barack Obama!

Unfortunately for well-meaning fans, the President can't actually help since he can only deal with federal crimes — not state.

Steven and Brendan are both currently in jail for killing Teresa Halbach… but could this petition be the spotlight their case needs??

All 10 episodes of Making a Murderer are currently available on Netflix.
