'Making a Murderer's' Brendan Dassey Is Expected to Be Released from Prison


The decision is a win for the team behind the Netflix docuseries, who heavily suggested that Dassey's confession was coerced, but it also raises a myriad of questions. "This round goes to Brendan Dassey 2-1".

"There was no assessment of the cumulative nature of the interrogators' promises, no assessment of the fact-feeding in light of Dassey's limited intellectual capabilities", wrote Duffin. They can also seek review from the 7th Circuit of the United States or the United States Supreme Court. As in most cases on voluntariness of confessions, relevant factors point in conflicting directions. By that point, Dassey had already recanted. The state has 90 days to decide whether or not to retry Dassey. The Journal Sentinel in Milwaukee received a comment from the Wisconsin Department of Justice, which said it was evaluating the decision. But despite this ruling, Dassey's time in prison and court still might not be over. The federal magistrate ruled that detectives took advantage of Dassey's youth and mental health problems. Duffin called the confession "so clearly involuntary in a constitutional sense that the court of appeals' decision to the contrary was an unreasonable application of clearly established federal law". Wisconsin prosecutors, according to NBC News, could either re-try Dassey or appeal Thursday's decision to the Supreme Court.

April 25, 2007: After 4 1/2 hours of deliberation, the jury convicts Dassey of being party to first-degree intentional homicide, mutilation of a corpse and second-degree sexual assault.

A spokesman for Wisconsin's attorney general says an appeals court erred in affirming that a confession was improperly obtained from Brendan Dassey in a criminal case featured in the Netflix series "Making a Murderer". If a motion for bail filed Friday by Nirider and Drizin is granted, he could be released as early as next week.

He filed a $36 million federal lawsuit against the county, its former sheriff and district attorney in 2004. A year later, he and Dassey were accused of killing Halbach. The next appointment, Zellner says, was with Steven Avery, who claims Halbach arrived at 2:31 p.m., and left a few minutes after photographing his sister's van.

Avery was sentenced to life in prison in a separate trial.

In a joint statement, Dassey's lawyers said they were "overjoyed".

"There was no physical evidence linking Dassey to the murder of Halbach - investigators did not find any of Dassey's DNA or blood on any of the many objects that were mentioned in his confession - the knives in Avery's house, gun, handcuffs, bed, RAV4, key, or automotive dolly."
