Making a Murderer’s Brendan Dassey to be released from prison

Making a Murderer’s Brendan Dassey is set to be released today after 10 years behind bars.

The 27-year-old, whose high profile case featured in the popular Netflix documentary, was ordered a release by a US judge on Monday.

Dassey was sentenced to life in prison for the co-murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005, however his conviction was overturned in August after a judge established that he had been tricked into a confession by investigators.


The state is now appealing.

Local media say Dassey’s release comes with a number of conditions, some of which include that he cannot contain a passport or contact his uncle Steven Avery.
