'Making A Murderer': Brendan Dassey's Conviction Overturned
The judge ruled Dassey's confession was unlawfully coerced.By Matt Picht | August 12, 2016
Brendan Dassey, the Wisconsin teen whose trial played a key role in the Netflix docuseries "Making A Murderer," had his murder conviction thrown out by a federal judge.
Under police interrogation, Dassey implicated himself and his uncle Steven Avery in the 2005 killing of photographer Teresa Halbach; he later recanted that confession. He's currently serving a life sentence with parole eligibility in 2048.
