Brendan Dassey Released
If you’ve watched Netflix’s “Making A Murderer” then you’re well aware of Brendan Dassey, the nephew of Steven Avery who was “recklessly coerced” into a confession.
Well now at 27, Brendan has been released in the rape and murder case of Teresa Halbach.
A federal judge has ordered that Brendan Dassey – whose case was featured in the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer – be released from prison immediately.
A federal magistrate judge ruled in August that investigators tricked Dassey into confessing he helped his uncle, Avery, rape, kill and mutilate Halbach, a photographer, in 2005.
Dassey, who turned 27 Wednesday, was 16 at the time. The magistrate ordered that Dassey be freed unless prosecutors appealed or decided to retry him.
Dassey was sentenced to life in prison in 2007.
His uncle Steven Avery is still incarcerated for Halbach’s death.
A lawyer for Avery recently shared however that they’re hoping to get some evidence tested in hopes of showing that it was planted.
