Thankfully there's a judge that could finally recognize this boy's confession was total BS.

The judge's order claims the detectives who were investigating Halbach's murder promised Dassey prosecutorial leniency in exchange for his cooperation during his March 1, 2006, interrogation.

"The investigators repeatedly claimed to already know what happened on Oct. 31 and assured Dassey that he had nothing to worry about," the decision reads. "These repeated false promises, when considered in conjunction with all relevant factors, most especially Dassey's age, intellectual deficits, and the absence of a supportive adult, rendered Dassey's confession involuntary under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments."

The judge's decision suggests he had "significant doubts" concerning the reliability of Dassey's confession.

"Crucial details evolved through repeated leading and suggestive questioning and generally stopped changing only after the investigators, in some manner, indicated to Dassey that he finally gave the answer they were looking for," the ruling reads. "Purportedly corroborative details could have been the product of contamination from other sources, including the investigators' own statements and questioning, or simply logical guesses, rather than actual knowledge of the crime."
Expert witness testimony must be the product of reliable principles and methods. {Paraphrase of Fed. Rules of Evidence 702c}

This is great news. We will have to wait and see what the State decides to do. They have 90 days to either send the case back to trial or set Brendan free. He is not free yet, but hopefully he will be very soon.

Brendan's attorneys Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin took on this case long before Netflix made it famous. They are both outstanding.

His Honour Kanchinsky will preside over the re-trial. Like something out of Kafka.
Sample 36B: not blood, not human and not a sample (no cytology!!). Sample 36I: Amanda's LCN profile, ergo the knife is the murder weapon. :boggled:

Or appeal the ruling which is most likely what they will do.
