‘Making A Murderer’ Subject Brendan Dassey Is Being Released From Prison

After verdict overturned by a federal magistrate, the release has now been ordered

Brendan Dassey, who was made famous by his role in the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer, was ordered to be released from prison on Monday, pending an appeal.

The Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel will file an emergency motion seeking of stay of this release order. In August, the federal Magistrate William Duffin overturned Dassey’s conviction.

The official release order does come with conditions, including that he stays in Eastern District of Wisconsin, cannot own a passport, or have contact with members of the Avery or Halbach families.

Brendan Dassey was found guilty along with his uncle Steven Avery, of the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. The documentary showed many contradictions in the prosecutor’s case and prompted many fans of the show calling for Avery and Dassey’s release.
