If you're a fan of Netflix's program Making a Murderer, you're probably on the side that thinks Brendan Dassey was basically tricked into confessing to a rape and murder that he didn't commit.
When he was 16-years-old, Dassey was accused of assisting his uncle, Steven Avery, of raping and killing Teresa Halbach, a 25-year-old photographer who vanished in November 2005 in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin.
Dassey’s attorneys argued that his 2006 confession to the killing had to be seriously re-evaluated due to Dassey’s mental disability.
A judge earlier this year even tried to have his conviction thrown out, but the state of Wisconsin threw the ruling out.
But now, Dassey has finally been ordered a release from prison, with a few conditions.
According to TJM4, Dassey would be allowed to be released from prison but his travel would be restricted to the Eastern district of Wisconsin.
He can’t get a passport or possess weapons and he’s restricted from any contact with Halbach’s or Avery’s families.

Fans are excited to see Dassey out of prison, to say the least.
I’m sure it’s only a small consolation to him and his family after being improperly jailed for years, but hopefully more is done to help him make up for the time that he lost.
