DOJ asks to keep 'Making a Murderer' inmate locked up

Wisconsin attorneys asked a federal appeals court Monday to keep an inmate featured in the Netxflix series "Making a Murderer" behind bars while they fight a second ruling overturning his conviction. He says Dassey should stay where he is for now because the circumstances of his case have note changed; he is still a convicted murderer in the eyes of Wisconsin.

It is not known how long it will take for the court to rule on the release request.

"Dassey's release pending full resolution of this appeal would harm the public interest, as he has been convicted of rape, murder, and mutilation of a corpse, thereby establishing his dangerousness to the public", the filing said.

Brendan Dassey was sentenced to life in 2007 in connection with Teresa Halbach's death.

His new attorney, Kathleen Zellner, recently filed a motion to the state of Wisconsin arguing that Avery deserves a new trial. A three-judge panel from the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld that ruling last week, prompting Dassey's attorneys to seek his immediate release.

A Friday afternoon motion with the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals requested his his release. The writ of habeas corpus is granted unless the State of Wisconsin elects to retry Dassey within 90 days of issuance of this court's final mandate, or the Supreme Court's final mandate. She authored the court's 2-1 opinion.

Duffin on November 14th ordered the release of Dassey, ruling he be freed under the supervision of the US Probation Office after overturning his confession in August - saying investigators coerced Dassey, who was 16 at the time, and suffered from cognitive problems, into confessing. They are the founder and director, respectively, of the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth at the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in Chicago. "False confessions (are not) beneficial to the prosecutor whose goal is to find, punish, and incapacitate the actual criminal, they are not beneficial to grieving relatives and friends who want to bring justice to the perpetrator of a crime, and, of course, they are of no benefit to a wrongfully accused defendant". The discussion about his nephew, Brendan Dassey, however was much less conflicted.

Dassey's attorneys asked the court to release him immediately. Avery, he wrote, is "by any measure of the evidence, stone guilty". He said it would be unsafe to release him, given the seriousness of the crime. As of last Friday, he had "lost 4,132 days of his life to prison", they pointed out.
