For Johnny Koremenos, a spokesman for Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel, there is a need to reverse the erroneous decision recently made by the judges in favor of Dassey.
A federal appeals court has refused to immediately release a Wisconsin inmate featured in the Netflix series "Making a Murderer" while the state fights the reversal of his conviction.More news: Theresa May attacked over moves to limit European Union citizens' rights after Brexit
The state Department of Justice argued Dassey should remain in prison while it appeals. This report will be updated.
"There was no physical evidence linking Dassey to the murder of Halbach - investigators did not find any of Dassey's DNA or blood on any of the many objects that were mentioned in his confession - the knives in Avery's house, gun, handcuffs, bed, RAV4, key, or automotive dolley", the judge pointed out.
Last week, a three-judge panel from the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with a lower court ruling that Dassey's conviction should be thrown out.More news: USA Gymnastics needs 'culture change' to stop abuse
A jury in 2007 found Dassey guilty of first-degree intentional homicide, second-degree sexual assault and mutilation of a corpse. Central time deadline today to respond to that request for Dassey's 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.
Dassey and his uncle Steven Avery became the subject of Netflix's "Making a Murderer", which first launched on the streaming site in December 2015. 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.More news: China frees 3 activists who probed Ivanka Trump supplier
Dassey's conviction was overturned after a three-judge federal appeals panel ruled that he was coerced into confessing to a crime, upholding a federal magistrate judge's ruling that Dassey's confession had been improperly obtained. The case gained worldwide attention after the release of "Making a Murderer" on Netflix.
