Brendan Dassey Once Again Denied Release, To Remain In Prison During Appeal

'Making a Murderer's Brendan Dassey is still in prison despite a judge's order that he be released while Wisconsin state prosecutors appeal his overturned conviction.

Dassey's conviction was overturned in August of this year on the grounds that his taped confession, in which he admitted to helping Steven Avery rape and murder photographer Teresa Halbach, was coerced by Manitowoc investigators.

The state of Wisconsin had 90 days to release him. However, it is appealing that decision.

He was interrogated four times over a two days without a parent or attorney present. He was 15 at the time with an IQ in the borderline deficiency range and was enrolled in special education classes.

Dassey later recanted his co-conspirator confession in a letter to the judge but was unbelievably found guilty of first-degree intentional homicide, second-degree sexual assault and mutilation of a corpse.

The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the 'Making a Murderer' subject to remain in prison throughout his appeals.
