The judge overturned his conviction, ruling that he should be released or retried, but the Justice Department appealed the verdict, meaning Dassey remained in prison.

Dassey's attorneys last Friday filed paperwork seeking his release from prison based on a Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Dassey's favor.

Dassey's lawyers go on to say, "Indeed, the State can no longer credibly argue that it is "likely to succeed on appeal". when it has not prevailed against a habeas petitioner in either the district court or the court of appeals but files a petition for en banc rehearing nonetheless".

"Respect for the en banc (and possible Supreme Court) process, the Motions Panel's well-considered stay decision, the powerful dissenting opinion from the Merits Panel's holding, and the conclusion by a Wisconsin jury that Dassey committed heinous crimes all strongly militate against lifting the stay", the state wrote.

The documentary recounted how Avery was convicted of an earlier, unrelated rape and sent to prison in 1985, serving 18 years before DNA evidence exonerated him and he was released.
