As proof that Gutierrez was perhaps unfit to handle Adnan’s case, Koenig refers to another case that she was working on at the same time involving The Witman Family. It’s a tragic story of a 15-year-old boy accused of killing his 13-year-old brother. For that case, Gutierrez asked for thousands of dollars to pay experts, who were never paid. As in Adnan’s case, the investigation seems to have been botched and as with Adnan’s family, the Witmans feel their son was never given a fair day in court.
In “The Witmans,” a short film by Joe Lee, we meet Ron and Sue Witman who are dealing with the aftermath of the tragedy. Lee tracks the couple as they make their weekly visit to see their son, Zack, in prison (who’s possibly been wrongfully accused).
