Lawyer for ‘Making a Murderer’ subject wants Supreme Court to review case

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.

‘Making a Murderer’ subject Steven Avery denied new trial – WABC

A Wisconsin man convicted in the killing of a woman that was the focus of the hit Netflix series “Making a Murderer” was denied a request for a new trial Tuesday.

Steven Avery’s attorney said she planned to present new evidence to the court to try and revive his request after it was rejected by a state circuit judge. Avery had argued that his conviction in the 2005 death of photographer Teresa Halbach was based on planted evidence and false testimony.

“We have additional test results and witness affidavits,” Avery’s attorney Kathleen Zellner said in a statement. “The scientific testing is not completed, we remain optimistic that Mr. Avery’s conviction will be vacated.”

Sheboygan County Circuit Judge Angela Sutkiewicz said in her ruling that based on the evidence presented so far, Avery failed to establish grounds to warrant a new trial. Avery argued that new scientific tests cast doubt on evidence submitted at

Netflix’s ‘Making a Murderer’ Subject Steven Avery Has Been Denied a New Trial

The long, highly-unusual legal saga of Steven Avery continues to evolve nearly two years after audiences were captivated by his story in Netflix’s 10-part docuseries “Making a Murderer.” On Tuesday, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, Judge Angela Sutkiewicz issued a ruling that denied Avery a new trial for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach.

The Netflix series’ investigation of the case presented the possibility that Avery and his then-16-year-old nephew Brendan Dassey were railroaded by local officials in their convictions, which Avery has argued was the product of planted evidence and false testimony.

The false testimony aspect of the case has already proved to hold some merit in the courts, as a judge overturned Dassey’s conviction earlier this year. Dassey confessed to police that he and his uncle raped and murdered Halbach, but as the Netflix series appeared to show — using video of Dassey’s confession — the cognitively disabled

Fate of ‘Making A Murderer’ subject now in hands of federal appeals court – WILX

WILX The fate of one of the men profiled in the Netflix documentary ‘Making A Murderer’ is now in the hands of federal appeals court.

The 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals heard arguments in Chicago on Tuesday on whether Brendan Dassey was tricked by investigators into confessing he helped his uncle Steven Avery, rape and kill photographer Theresa Halbach in 2005 in Wisconsin.

The state argued Dassey was told several times by investigators that he was free to go and that anything he said be used against them when they interrogated him.

Dassey was 16-years-old when he was convicted of the murder in 2007. The video of Dassey’s confession was featured in the hit Netflix documentary.

The Chief Judge of appeals court says she couldn’t believe what she saw in the video.

“The investigators made my skin crawl watching this

Making A Murderer subject Brendan Dassey to appeal conviction in full federal court

Last November, a judge in Milwaukee who must’ve finally gotten around to watching Making A Murderer decided to overturn the conviction of Brendan Dassey, who has been in prison since 2007 after he confessed to helping his uncle Steven Avery in the rape and murder of a woman named Teresa Halbach. As people who have seen the aforementioned Netflix documentary series probably know, though, Dassey’s confession was pretty clearly coerced, making the recent moves to get his conviction overturned a very belated bit of justice for a guy who was 16 when the cops pushed him to confess to the crime.

The state of Wisconsin appealed the judge’s decision, and although an appeals court decided to uphold the overturning, the state continued fighting it and Dassey

Appeals court: No immediate release for "Making a Murderer" subject Brendan Dassey

MADISON, Wis. – A Wisconsin inmate featured in the hit Netflix series “Making a Murderer” lost another bid Wednesday to get out of prison while state attorneys fight a ruling overturning his conviction.

A three-judge panel from the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Brendan Dassey must stay behind bars for now. The panel’s brief order gave no explanation.

Dassey, now 27, was sentenced to life in prison in 2007 in the death of photographer Teresa Halbach two years earlier. He told detectives he helped his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill Halbach in the Avery family’s junk yard in Manitowoc County.
