“Making a Murderer” Dassey’s Appeal Rescheduled
Like most, I was hooked on the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer.
Brendan Dassey's story in the docu-series had to be one of the most heartbreaking.
Only 16 at the time of his arrest, most that have watched the Netflix series, and Dassey himself, feel he was coerced by police to confess to his part in helping his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill Teresa Halbach in 2005.
Shortly after the premiere of Making a Murderer, Dassey and his legal team have been working to appeal his conviction in this case.
As of Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court was supposed to start hearing his appeal. It appears now to have been rescheduled. It is reported that the justices were scheduled to hold a conference on Dassey's appeal, but the court docket shows it has been rescheduled. No new date has been set, along with no reason for the reschedule.
In order for Dassey's conviction to be overturned, four of the nine justices would have to agree to the case before arguments can be scheduled.
Season 2 of the hugely popular Making a Murderer is supposed to be coming to Netflix sometime this year.
