On Thursday, Jerry Buting — one of Steven's defense attorneys from the Netflix docu-series — discredited her new claims and STILL believes the 53-year-old is telling the truth, opening up to Rolling Stone:
"Realize that there was a fair amount of coverage with Jodi [in the documentary]. She was getting a lot of pressure, even while the trial was going on, to try and turn her away from Steven Avery. It's many years, who knows what kind of pressure and influences have been exerted against her to try and make express that kind of opinion."

"Bottom line is that when things were contemporaneous, happening back during that time, she did not have that opinion. She was very supportive of him. So, why is she changing her opinion? I don't know at this point."
However, in her sit-down, Jodi claimed that the only reason she had been standing by her man was because he "used to beat" her, and told her she had to "make him look good" in the doc "or else."
But Jerry doesn't believe his old client's former flame can really be taken at face value regarding these allegations, saying:
