Steven Avery, who was wrongly convicted of a rape and spent six years in prison, seems to have been hardly a model citizen.
While Avery did serve time for a rape he did not commit, six years of his 18-year sentence was for an incident in which he ran off the road and pointed a rifle directly at her. He let her go after seeing her baby in the car.
In that incident, Avery was charged with endangering safety and one count of a felon in possession of a firearm.
Avery was a felon due to burglary convictions from the 1980′s.
Steven Avery has said he’s not violent, but these letters may tell a different story. Letters that were attained by CBS 5. Wait until you read the following information that Steve Avery wrote while he was in jail.
When Steven Avery went to prison in 1986, he was married and a father of four.
In 1987, his wife filed for divorce which apparently angered him. We found a photocopy of an Easter card that Steven Avery sent to his children in 1988. Bears and raccoons grace the cover. A cute well-wish to a child from a Father. But, inside of this card reveals a different message. It reads, “Daddy will git mom when daddy gits out. I will…I hate mom.Kiss Daddy here. Love Daddy.”
The same card sent to his sons reads, “Daddy will be out soon and daddy will pick you four kids up and run and run. Happy time to come for us. I hate mom. She will pay.”
The same card sent to his sons reads, “Daddy will be out soon and daddy will pick you four kids up and run and run. Happy time to come for us. I hate mom. She will pay.“
Avery also wrote threatening letters to his ex-wife. One reads, “I will kill you. Ha Ha.“
A second reads, “Your car ain’t going to run.”

Ever get the feeling that even though Steven Avery was wrongfully convicted, maybe he might have been in the right place after all?
