Brendan Dassey‘s in no way a flight risk and should be let out of prison while his appeal is pending … at least that’s the argument his lawyers are making to get him out now.
You’ll recall a federal judge ordered the release of Dassey back in August … but the Wisconsin Attorney General appealed that decision.
Lawyers say that’s fine and dandy … but in the meantime, while that process plays out, Dassey should be released. According to docs … Dassey’s lawyers also argue he wouldn’t pose a danger to the public if he’s released.
Dassey — convicted for helping Steven Avery in a murder chronicled on “Making a Murderer” — was ordered released from prison after his constitutional rights were violated.
