    Judge Overturns Conviction for 'Making a Murderer' Subject Brendan Dassey: Report
    [​IMG]AP
    In this Aug. 2, 2007 file photo, Brendan Dassey is escorted into court for his sentencing in Manitowoc, Wis.
    A federal judge in Milwaukeee has reportedly overturned the conviction for Brendan Dassey, the young man whose case was closely documented in the Netflix series “Making a Murderer."

    According to NBC affiliate TMJ4, Dassey could go free in 90 days if the state does not refile.

    Northwestern University’s Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth legal team based in Chicago first took Dassey’s case to federal court in Wisconsin in 2014 the hopes that he will be granted a writ of Habeas corpus, which would have forced the government to examine his case and rule whether he has been imprisoned illegally. The petition was pending before Magistrate Judge William E. Duffin in Milwaukee.

    Dassey’s case was one of two followed in the popular “Making a Murderer” series, which depicts the story of Dassey’s uncle, Steven Avery. Dassey and Avery are currently serving life sentences for the 2005 murder of 25-year-old photographer of Teresa Halbach.

    Avery, a Wisconsin man who was imprisoned for 18 years for sexual assault before DNA evidence exonerated him in 2003, was suing Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, the former district attorney and the county sheriff for $36 million when he was accused of Halbach's murder.

    Most recently, the show's filmmakers said a juror from Avery's murder trial claims he was not proven guilty, but the juror voted to convict him out of fear for his/her personal safety. The two filmmakers have not yet contacted other jurors to independently verify the claim, they said. NBC News has not independently verified the allegation with any jurors.

    Dassey was arrested at the age of 16 in connection with case, but his attorneys maintain his confession was coerced.

    Steven Drizin, a clinical professor at Northwestern University School of Law who is among the attorneys representing Dassey, said his team of lawyers from the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth at Northwestern, and Wisconsin attorney Robert Dvorak, have spent years on the case.

    Drizin said the team investigated Dassey’s case for two years before filing an appeal in 2010. The appeal was ultimately denied by a state appellate court and the Wisconsin Supreme Court refused to hear the case.

    The habeas petition was filed in federal court in the Eastern District of Wisconsin in 2014.

    “We’re hopeful is what I would say,” Drizin said at the time. “The deeper you go into this system, whether it’s in the state court system or the federal court system, the harder it is to win. We’ve won cases in federal court before and we’re hoping that this is another one that we’ll win.”

    Drizin said the petition focused largely on Dassey’s original public defender, Len Kachinsky, who was ultimately removed from the case.

    “A lot of our appeal has to do with the actions that Brendan’s original attorney Len Kachinsky took, which demonstrated his disloyalty to Brendan and his willingness to work with the prosecution to try to get Brendan to plead guilty and testify against Steven Avery,” Drizin said.

    He also maintains that Dassey’s confession was coerced “by [investigators] feeding him facts.”

    “To me, this case is a classic example of how not to interrogate juvenile suspects and the tactics that were used during Brendan’s interrogation are a recipe for false confessions,” he said.

    In a brief filed last year, the state argued Dassey failed to show that the appeals court’s decision was unreasonable.

    “[Investigators] merely stated, in calm tones, that they ‘already knew’ what happened and allowed Dassey to confess that he had raped Halbach, and was involved in her murder,” the brief reads. “Dassey’s confession was not coerced, and the state court’s decision on Dassey’s voluntariness claim did not involve an unreasonable application of clearly established Federal law.”

    Former Calamut County District Attorney Ken Kratz, who prosecuted Dassey and Avery, recently told Peoplemagazine that he has "a great bit of sympathy" for Dassey, who he said "never would have been involved in this except for his uncle."

    Dassey would have been out sooner if he had taken a plea bargain, Kratz said.

    Drizin said while “Making a Murderer” has put Dassey’s case in the national spotlight, he didn't believe it would have an impact on the judge’s decision.

    “I don’t think that the Netflix movie is going to influence a federal judge, but at the same time, judges are human beings and the Netflix film has created a context for Brendan’s case that didn’t exist at the time of his trial or his appeals,” he said.

    Good.

    He should sue the police department for 10 times what Avery was asking.
