Making A Murderer’s Brendan Dassey To Be Released From Prison

Dassey's release ordered by a federal magistrate

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.

U.S. Magistrate Judge William Duffin ruled that Dassey’s release, which is not immediate, be supervised by probation officials, according to the Associated Press. Dassey, 27, has until noon on Tuesday, November 15, to provide the federal probation and parole office with the address of where he plans to live after his release.

The official release order does come with conditions, including that he stays in Eastern District of Wisconsin, he cannot get 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
