A Wisconsin man who served on the jury that sentenced Steven Avery to life in prison exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com that he now regrets the 2007 guilty murder verdict.

“There was a lot of crooked shit going on that wasn’t very believable to tell you the truth,” the juror shockingly revealed to Radar on Thursday.

Radar asked the juror if he lives with regrets over Avery’s guilty verdict, to which he replied, “Yeah. But in my own opinion, there was no way of going against the prosecution here.”

11 years later, the juror admitted the jury's split verdict doesn’t make sense. As Radar readers know, the jury found Avery guilty of murdering photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005, but not guilty of mutilating her corpse.

“If that doesn’t raise any suspicions in people’s minds, I don’t know what does,” the frustrated juror said.

“I think he needs to a new trial!” the juror added.

Avery’s life sentence came under public scrutiny in 2015 after the release of Netflix’s documentary Making A Murderer, which gave viewers a look into the controversial trial.

Season 2 of the true crime series returns on Friday, Oct. 19.

Despite the juror’s shocking disapproval with his former decision, he revealed to Radar that he plans to watch the show again.

“A lot of people in Wisconsin are talking about it,” said the juror.
