Brendan Dassey has been in prison since he was 16 years old and a judge just ordered that he be released. He was convicted of helping Steven Avery murder Teresa Halbach. According to TMZ, a judge just ruled that Brendan Dassey’s constitutional rights were violated when he was questioned by police. If you remember from Making a Murderer, he was talked to multiple times without a parent present. They also took into account the fact that Brendan has a below average intellectual ability and that the interrogating police officers mislead him to believe they were on his side.
