He deserves some happiness… doesn't he?
Steven Avery has become one of the most talked about people in the country this past month thanks to his docu-series Making a Murderer.
The Netflix drama follows the trials of Steven and his nephew Brendan Dassey as they're eventually convicted of murdering and raping Teresa Halbach.

What makes the piece so engrossing, however, is that many viewers believe that Steven is actually innocent — or at the very least, the victim of an unjust trial.
Luckily, the 53-year-old is armed with a new lawyer and just appealed the decision having sat in a jail since 2005… and he couldn't be happier!
According to his longtime girlfriend Sandy Greenman, Steven is positively overjoyed that so many people are on his side:
"Right now, Steven's in a really good place! It's not just the lawyer, it's the people. It makes him smile.
It's a firestorm. I didn't expect it to be this big. We have messages from all over, different countries, different states. It's nice to know that people support us — It just seems like it gives more hope to Steve."
The court of public opinion is certainly on your side, Steven!
