If the Netflix series “Making A Murderer” didn’t suck you in before, I bet it will now with it’s new turn of events!
According to TMZ, “Brendan Dassey — the man who was convicted for helping Steven Avery in a murder chronicled on “Making a Murderer” — has been ordered to be released. A federal judge just ruled Dassey’s constitutional rights were violated when he was grilled, then tried for the murder of Teresa Halbach. The judge ruled authorities crossed the line by interrogating the then 16-year-old without an adult present. The judge said authorities exacerbated the problem by assuring Dassey they were on his side. And the judge said, “Dassey’s borderline to below average intellectual ability likely made him more susceptible to coercive pressures than a peer of higher intellect.”
Wow, talk about this guy’s lucky day!
TMZ goes on to say that Wisconsin prosecutors have 90 days to decide if they want to retry Dassey.
