Go inside The Staircase when David Rudolf comes to Galway

Mon, Aug 20, 2018

Michael Peterson and David Rudolf.

DAVID RUDOLF, the defence attorney for Michael Peterson in the hit Netflix documentary series The Staircase, is coming to Galway to give a public talk where he will present intimate details of both the case and the series.

Michael Peterson was convicted in 2003 of murdering his wife, Kathleen Peterson, on December 9, 2001, for which he served almost eight years. However he was granted a new trial, scheduled to begin in May 2017, but in February of that year he submitted an Alford plea to the reduced charge of manslaughter. He was sentenced to time already served and freed.

The case is the subject of the Netflix series The Staircase, directed by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade, and which started filming soon after Peterson's arrest in 2001 and followed events until his eventual Alford plea in 2017.
