Ever since Netflix launched "Making a Murderer" in 2015, fans have started to follow the cases of Brendan Dassey and Steven Avery on the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. Just recently, the younger convicted's case is updated as the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago supported the federal judge’s decision to invalidate his conviction.

However, although there is an official order, the Wisconsin Department of Justice is requesting the federal appeals court to keep him detained. The state law enforcement agency has filed an appeal to the second ruling of overturning his verdict.

An appeal to the ruling

The Wisconsin Department of Justice insisted that Brendan Dassey should stay behind bars as the case of Teresa Halbach’s murder is not yet resolved.

The filing claimed that the agency is going to contradict the entire ruling to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals within the next two weeks, USA Today reported. The bureau is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the victim's case or run another trial.

A jury from Wisconsin believed that Brendan Dassey is guilty of “heinous crimes,” thus he should stay imprisoned.

The filing also noted that "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 dead body, they believed that he is a big threat to the public.

Invalidating the conviction

To recall, Brendan Dassey and Steven Avery was convicted with life sentences in 2007 for the murder of Teresa Halbach.

Allegedly, he admitted the crime and confessed that he helped his uncle to rape and kill the photographer in 2005.

However, he later claimed that he was coerced by the investigators to admit the crime, thus a federal judge overturned his conviction in 2016.

In a joint statement, his lawyers Laura Nirider and Robert Dvorak "look forward to working to secure his release from prison as soon as possible.” They, too, said that their client has lost a huge amount of time as he spends most of his life in the prison. If the overturning of his conviction will push through, he might be released from the jail within the three months.

Fans reaction

Meanwhile, “Making a Murderer” fans believed that Brendan Dassey is actually innocent of Teresa Halbach's murder.

The viewers, too, think that his confession is coerced by the investigators. In fact, a federal appeal also believed that it actually happened. During his interrogation, it can be seen that the examiners were trying to give him details about the murder.

These new updates of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey's cases could be further revealed in the coming “Making a Murderer” Season 2.
