Dassey Stays Behind Bars

Manitowoc County Executive Bob Ziegelbauer calls the decision to keep Brendan Dassey in prison a “good result.” He says it’s in line with other court rulings, and says people must be patient as the legal process drags on, in respect to the family of Dassey’s murder victim. Yesterday, the federal appeals court in Chicago approved the state’s request to keep Dassey in prison while it appeals the August ruling that threw out his guilty verdict in the brutal 2005 slaying of Teresa Hallbach near Mishicot. Dassey and his uncle, Steven Avery are both in prison — and their convictions were called into question by the Netflix T-V series “Making a Murderer.” Dassey’s lawyers were disappointed that the appeals court overturned a magistrate judge’s ruling that would have freed him by eight tonight — and as the defense puts it, “The fight goes on.”
