Michael Griesbach is a veteran prosecutor in the state of Wisconsin where the events recounted in his books occurred. He wrote The Innocent Killer as a gripping true crime novel, but also as a challenge to the system. He hopes to leave readers better informed about the inner workings of the criminal justice system and more concerned about those whose lives it deeply affects. He lives in northeastern Wisconsin with his wife Jody and their four children.

“the names Steve and Lori chose for their two baby boys were William and Billy Jr.”
Michael Griesbach, The Innocent Killer: A True Story of a Wrongful Conviction and its Astonishing Aftermath

“Steve had cut a deal on the other charges pending against him at the time—the charges associated with his forcing a deputy sheriff’s wife off the road—and he received a six-year sentence for that crime. In other words, he would have spent six of those eighteen years in prison even if he had not been wrongly convicted of the other crime.”
Michael Griesbach, The Innocent Killer: A True Story of a Wrongful Conviction and its Astonishing Aftermath

“instance, he and a friend set a cat on fire. The previous year a neighbor’s dog returned home half-castrated, and the neighbor suspected Steve was behind that, too. He once threatened to run his former girlfriend off the road and shoot out her car windows. He told her he was going to put sugar in her gas tank, and a week later she found sand in her motor oil. He was so distraught over their break-up that he told her he was going to burn down her parents’ house”
