'Making A Murderer's' Brendan Dassey's Case Takes An Unexpected Turn

'Making A Murderer's' Brendan Dassey's Case Takes An Unexpected Turn

The news will come as a surprise to fans of the hit show.

Brendan Dassey was at the heart of the Netflix documentary 'Making A Murderer' and his motion to be released from prison has been declined by a US appeals court.

Dassey was accused of aiding his uncle Steven Avery in the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2007 and they were both given life sentences. Dassey was 16 at the time and he's now 28. The Chicago courthouse did not find Dassey's confession to murder was not forced by police and his interview was properly conducted.

Dassey was without legal representation during his police interrogations and last year a court in Wisconsin found that Dassey has been tricked into confessing, with the judge pointing out that Dassey has a low IQ. The court, and fans of the show, believe Dassey was coerced into changing his story multiple times.


The state appealed the courts' decision and asked for a panel to vote at the appeals court. The motion was passed by 4-3 and the judge ruled that the confession was not forced. The judge has decided Dassey will remain behind bars.
