Brendan Dassey of ‘Making a Murderer’ To Be Released
“The federal judge who overturned the conviction of Brendan Dassey in the case made famous by Making A Murderer ordered today that Dassey be freed from prison, under supervision, pending further court developments.” U.S. District Judge William Duffin issued the order, and Wisconsin’s attorney general, Brad Schimel, moved to block the release. They are hoping he is home by Thanksgiving, if not sooner. Brendan, who is now 27, has been in prison since being sentenced in 2007. He was sentenced to life for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach. Brendan’s uncle, Steven Avery, also is serving a life sentence for the murder. Under the release, he would be supervised by the U.S. Probation office.
