A lawyer for Brendan Dassey, one of the subjects in Netflix’s “Making a Murderer,” said he hopes the Supreme Court will review his client’s case.
Steven Drizin spoke with Martin Pritikin, the dean of Concord Law School at Kaplan University, as part of a Facebook Live with about his experience with Dassey’s case.
The last movement on Dassey’s case happened in December, when the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled police properly obtained Dassey’s confession and he should remain behind bars.
In 2007, Dassey was convicted as a teenager along with his uncle Steven Avery of murdering Teresa Halbach two years earlier. Dassey was sentenced to life in prison. Then, in 2015, his story and interrogation were shown as part of the Netflix series “Making a Murderer,” which raised questions about the case. Dassey’s attorneys argue he was coerced into his confession.
