Ever since the hit documentary ‘Making a Murderer,’ Brendan Dassey has been in the limelight for his case. A case, it should be noted, in which many people think he was wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to life after a coerced confession.
The confession has been a controversy for a whole, with critics believing that officers took advantage of his learning disabilities and age, prompting a very forced confession.
The case worked its way through the courts, with Dassey’s lawyers demanding his release in 2016.
After years of appeals, the US 7th Circuit Court Of Appeals has upheld his conviction in a very close 4-3 decision – refusing to throw out his conviction.
