No Release For Man Behind Netflix’s “Making a Murderer”
Brendan Dassey, a Wisconsin prisoner, on whose life Netflix made the popular series “Making a Murderer”, lost yet another chance to get out of prison. Sources claim that the convict would have to continue to spend time in prison while state attorney’s battle it out to overturn the judgment.
A panel led by three judges from the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals confirmed that Dassey would have to continue to stay in prison for now. No reasoning was forthcoming from the panel as to the reason behind their judgment.
The 27 YO was sentenced to life in prison in 2007 for helping his uncle rape and murder photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005.
Dassey had seen support from a federal magistrate judge, who claimed that the detectives had clearly taken advantage of him at the time, him being a mere 16 years old. His attorneys gave filed a petition for Dassey to be moved out of jail as they claim him to be innocent.
The three-judge panel sided with Wisconsin AG Brad Schimel, who has always been against letting Dassey off.
The entire case came into the spotlight, with the whole nation taking interest in the case after Netflix released the show “Making a Murderer.” The show’s story revolves around the death of Halbech, as a multi-part documentary.
