The attorney for convicted murderer Steven Avery is challenging the public to prove his guilt, and she’s offering a reward to anyone who successfully makes their case.

Kathleen Zellner issued the “Proof of Guilt Challenge” Thursday on Twitter, offering $10,000 to anyone who can fully answer a list of 100 questions.

According to the rules, your answer has to be based upon credible evidence and establishes Avery’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey are both currently incarcerated for the rape and murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005.

Attorneys for both Avery and Dassey have been working to free the two from prison. Their case gained special attention after the Netflix docu-series “Making a Murderer” pointed to potential holes in the defense’s case against them.

Dassey’s conviction had been thrown out by a federal judge, but he remains locked up as lawyers and judges debate his release.
