Making a Murderer: The Brendan Dassey Case

In this podcast, we discuss the Brendan Dassey case with guests, Jax West and Jim Lovering.

Brendan Dassey was wrongfully convicted of murder in 2007 on the basis of a coerced false confession to the rape and murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. No other evidence supports his conviction, and physical evidence flatly contradicts the statements in which he incriminated himself. Dassey’s uncle, Steven Avery, was also convicted of murdering Halbach, but the two were tried separately.

The recent debut of the Netflix documentary “Making A Murderer”, which details the murder of Teresa Halbach and the controversy surrounding her death, has brought renewed attention to the decade-old case. In 2014, Dassey filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin. A ruling on his petition is still pending.
