His lawyers said they were "overjoyed. and.are looking forward to working to secure his release from prison as soon as possible".

"While Dassey's legal team is free to file any motion they desire, Wisconsin DOJ intends to seek review of yesterday's 2-1 decision by the entire 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and by the United States Supreme Court, if necessary". The amount of gas in Teresa Halbach's Toyota RAV4 when it was found, an unedited video of a police flyover of the Avery salvage yard, and a CD containing a voicemail from Teresa Halbach were withheld, she alleges.

The case was the subject of the hit docu-series "Making a Murderer", a Netflix production that was released in December 2015.

June 22, 2017: A three-judge federal appeals panel rules that Dassey's confession was improperly obtained and he should be retried or released from prison.

Detectives interviewed Dassey multiple times in the months after Halbach's disappearance.

It appears to be a classic case of a false confession, and with questionable evidence and many odd coincidences leading to his uncle's conviction in the murder, there's plenty of people who are convinced that neither Dassey nor Avery were actually at fault. He initially said that he only helped Avery clean some fluid from the garage floor. Dassey was found guilty of helping his uncle kill a young woman in 2005, and has been held in a Wisconsin prison. The move kept 27-year-old Dassey behind bars. A few factors and passages from Dassey's confession support the majority's view that the confession was not voluntary. Rovner also held that Dassey's mental capacity made him specially vulnerable to such manipulation, which might otherwise be Constitutional.

They said there was "no big change" in the visa process when they applied at the U.S. More than 70 people were killed in that attack, including many children.

The majority opinion states, "Dassey's interview could be viewed in a psychology class as a flawless example of operant conditioning".

The judges added: "Whenever Dassey reported a fact that did not fit with the investigators" theory, he was chastised and told that he would not be "okay' unless he told the truth".

"My assumption is that they would have to release him, based on the judge's order unless they get another stay from the Supreme Court", Dvorak says.

Johnny Koremenos, a spokesman for Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel, said his office was evaluating the decision. Let me know in the comments! Dassey's attorney, on the other hand, called it a "victory".

According to the Independent, Judge David Hamilton said that the decision "breaks new ground and poses troubling questions for police and prosecutors".
